Nurture positivity with Tuesday hand-drumming classes


By Paul Roberts
Special to The PREVIEW
Join musician and music therapist Paul Roberts for a free hand-drumming class at the Pagosa Lakes Clubhouse on Tuesday, Sept. 4, at noon.
The class offers a welcoming environment that encourages fun, creativity, playfulness and connecting with others. Drums are provided for those who do not have one. Designed as an opportunity for people of all ages to unleash their creativity, the drumming class is a family-friendly activity open to all ages. No previous experience is necessary.
Music can nurture a positive state of mind.
Community music-making is a wellspring of well-being. Shared musical experiences develop connections between people, creating a sense of belonging. Meeting new people and working as a team to make music is a way to participate in the cultural life of the community, which contributes to the quality of life for the individual and the community.
Expressiveness, inclusiveness, playfulness — the priorities in the drumming class — give rise to uplifting and energizing experiences and a sense of accomplishment, satisfaction, belonging and well-being.
