WE all have an internal rhythm but it lies dormant until awakened.
That is the belief of drumming enthusiast Martin Phillips who is opening up his weekly Jam Fix sessions in Victoria Park to people with disability.
“No experience is necessary. Just an open mind and patience for yourself and those around,” Phillips said.
“In these sessions participants will access the internal rhythmic spirit we all have but which often remains dormant within us as there is no available outlet for it.”
Rhythm Fix provides all the instruments including African djembe and dundun drums.
Phillips sings over the rhythms, demonstrates drumming ‘breaks’ and sculpting the circle as participants learn to listen to and appreciate each other’s musical input.
The cost of the hour-long sessions is $10 and weekly sessions are also held in Balga and North Fremantle. For more details on days and locations email martin@rhythm fix.com or call 0417 953 810.
