General Schedule

Here is a general schedule for the week. After the morning meal, we begin each day as a group, starting with a music warm-up and then progressing to specific music techniques as a whole group.

The afternoon sessions move the focus to individual techniques designed to develop specific skills, using IPEx (Individual Playing Exercises). Participants spend time “woodshedding” (practicing) their assigned exercise, then we come together to share the musical results.

The evening activities span a wide range of experience, from the group rhythmic resonance of community drumming to a live broadcast concert on the final evening.
