Village Music Circles™ 6-day Facilitators Intensive Training provides beginning and advanced Facilitators the skills needed to lead Rhythm-Based events for groups of all sizes and backgrounds. This week-long experience will immediately connect facilitators to a supportive international community while providing extensive opportunities to learn and develop facilitation skills in a safe environment. Participants of all levels will receive peer, mentor and advanced Facilitator support.
This week goes beyond the training that is received in the 3 Day Training, with the presentation of more techniques, development of one’s own style, a greater depth of learning and a wider quantity of practical experiences.
Participants receive extensive practice in the facilitation techniques needed to lead a drum circle or rhythm event for a variety of populations and group sizes.
The program format will include group instruction and discussions combined with small group break-out exercises that reinforce the learning of the foundational facilitation elements presented. Exercises are taught sequentially so as to become progressively more complex as the facilitators’ skills develop throughout the week.
Participants experience multiple small group activities using movement, voice, musical instruments, and improvisational rhythm games.
Peer group and mentor leaders offer critique and feedback, which are a important part of the learning process. More time is given for individual attention, critiques, and skills building.
Week-Long Intensive includes extensive opportunities to freely experiment during the exciting and challenging free-form community “jump-time!” – Jump-time offers many hours of learning fun, practicing and exploring new skills in a supportive environment.
