Percussion Circles

Percussion circles are a great way to encourage creativity.

This was one I facilitated at our local Music Works Store in New Plymouth [that's in New Zealand].

Having a percussion circle in a Music Shop is a bit like being a kid in a toy store.

Percussion is great because most people have got rhythm and so confidence builds easily. There is no right or wrong about how and what to play.

Limitations can be put on participants to encourage creativity e.g. each group can only have two drums; each group must include a triangle.

The groups are then asked to 'compose and perform' their piece.

A great way to get a creative result!!
