“HUMAN INSTRUMENTS” – a workshop With Guest Facilitator from NYC- NICK DEMERIS – ( Carnegie Hall, Deepak Chopra Centre)…

HUMAN INSTRUMENTS is a workshop that unlocks the power of the voice using techniques from improvisational jazz, freestyle rap, european clown, and the musical methods espoused by vocal master Bobby McFerrin.
Whether you consider yourself a diva of song or a novice of sound, this workshop will explore our greatest musical potential, harnessing the power of improvisation to release the music inside and become “Human Instruments.”
We will play with spontaneous singing, beatboxing, rap, vocal ‘sampling,’ body percussion, and ultimately how to stand at the center of a circle – turning human beings into instruments and sound into music.

See Nick in Action with one of his projects- THE WHOLE TIme
