‘HeartBeats’: Drumming for Adults at Ocean County Library Beachwood Branch

August 07, 2023

BEACHWOOD – The Ocean County Library Beachwood Branch is pleased to present “HeartBeats: Drumming for Adults,’’ a fun and empowering interactive program, 11 AM Thursday, August 31.

The presenter is Steven E. Brown of Drumhead Enterprises, whose “BONK!” program has introduced children to percussion instruments from around the world at Ocean County Library branches and at other New Jersey libraries.

Participants in the one-hour program will share drums and percussive instruments, receive instruction in basic techniques, and have the chance create rhythm patterns and “lead” the group. Attendees are welcome to bring percussion instruments of their own.

Participants will also learn simple volume and speed dynamics, take part in a rhythm memory game, and create an imaginary “rain forest,” using percussion instruments to simulate the sounds of birds, animals and weather.

Please register at www.theoceancountylibrary.org/events for this free program, sponsored by the Ocean County Library Senior Services Department. Seating is limited, so early registration is encouraged.

For more information, visit the OCL Beachwood Branch, 126 Beachwood Avenue, or phone (732) 244-4573.
