Join us for a fun morning drum circle activity with Andrew Moreno. Andrew will have about 15 different hand drums out and available for youths or adults ages 10+ to learn how to play. Children ages 8-9 may also join, but must be accompanied by an adult the entire time.
The set-up will be along the Menomonee River Parkway, on the other side of the bike path from the soccer fields – check out this map for more info.
Chairs will be provided for participants. Others may wish to bring your own chairs/blankets for seating.
UPDATE: Because of the expected heat, cold bottles of water and free WMV water bottles will be given out at the event! Free of charge.
More from Andrew:
I have been playing drums for over 20 years. Throughout those 20 years I have been in bands from a wide variety of genres including metal, hip-hop, jazz, fusion, world-fusion, and electronic music. This has allowed me to really expand as a musician, so when playing a certain genre I can take elements that have I learned in those different genres to make my playing as unique as possible. My mother has been a huge inspiration and support in my life to be the person that I am today, and for allowing me to play drums at the expense of her ears. 😉 In supporting me in the things that I like to do such as playing drums, I was allowed to truly express myself. I truly believe that our youth today need to express themselves more than anything else, and I want to continue to be an inspiration to the youth to express themselves in the ways they need to, as long as their express is not hurting themselves or others.
