@Le Rhythm is an important element of music mostly associated with timing and repetition where we sometimes call it the beat. Rhythm is life and is all around us like the vibrations of the smallest particle to our very own heartbeat.

Rhythm throughout history connects people and communities, promotes collaboration and cooperation. Since rhythm is so fundamental, natural and universal to us all, we believe it is truly an appealing platform to learn and develop ourselves.

Rhythm based learning or RBL is a unique program that uses primarily rhythm and music to provide you a safe and fun way to learn and develop your emotional intelligence and leadership skills.

Benefits : You will have an opportunity to sample and experience a highly immersive, interactive, engaging learning through rhythmic activities via drums, percussions and music.  We will be using RBL to explore some topics like self-awareness, awareness of others, effective communications, active listening skills and focus on being rather than doing. All are important skills of an effective leader.

Come join us for this fun and engaging session where you can explore and discover what RBL can offer you.

Target Audience : Everyone, leaders, managers, supervisors, teachers, trainers, facilitators and educators

This session is designed for everyone with or without musical background and training.  All equipment will be provided.  You are encouraged to bring you own drums or favorite percussion. Let’s play and learn together.
