I mean it like that.
Playing all by itself. Playing as opposed to working. Playing because it brings us joy. No stresses of comparison and good enough or is it hard enough or am I able enough. We’re playing here. Playing. Like kids play. Have some fun!
Together is all of us. It includes everyone. It means you need to listen to other people. It is a dialog. One instrument speaks as a question, another a response; other instruments fill, support, encourage and burst out in joy. We need each other to make the song. We need to play together.
Welcome to Failla Drums’ Blog. This is where all the posts and updates are, as well as class notes. While reading our posts, if you have any comments please post them. We can learn from each other and share ideas. We love drumming at Failla Drums and hope in some way that by teaching and sharing rhythms we make the world a better place to live. If you know how to play come play with us. If not, we’ll share what we know about playing with rhythm. We’ll continue to post new information and ideas about rhythm and community and continue to create products that can help both teachers and students. If you want to help make the world a better place to live, come play with us. Let us know what you think!
Listening, communicating, working together, creating opportunities for each person involved to contribute, finding the way to do the best for the most… this is Community Building. This is the essence of what FaillaDrums is about.
.We are often given opportunities to volunteer our time and resources to serve our community the best way we know how. We are asked, and most often are able to volunteer at community events, shelters, schools and rallies. It is difficult to say no… So. We’d like to offer you the opportunity to volunteer to help support this. We are not a non-profit, so your gift will truly be a gift. And I’d like to thank you in advance for your generosity.
