Dis­cover your spe­cial beat

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Victoria Park -

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.
