"Drumming Camp at WSP"
Rhythm is in your heart, your body and your soul. Rhythm is as natural as your pulse and breath, and it's FUN! In drumming camp at the Waldorf School of the Peninsula, we will use our fee and hands to stomp and clap, play drums, tap sticks, shake, sing and make great nourishing rhythmic music together! For more information on this and other camps, and to register: http://waldorfpeninsula.org/curriculum-br-programs/summer-camp.html or contact us at [email protected] 650.209.9400 Submitted by Waldorf School of the Peninsula on Mar 4, 2013
