Embodying Rhythm Newsletter

Dear Ones,

Thank you for helping make the Musical Caravan concerts a success. What fun to tour around the musical globe. We are hoping to find a way to do a CD recording of some of that material at some point later this year.

We have been having a somewhat quiet February working on the unveiling of all the fun offerings we have coming up this spring and summer (and for next year’s World Music concert season). Just in March, David will be offering 5 in-school outreach concerts, 6 evening performances, 13 days of in-school residency, 3 after-school programs, and a weekend of puppet workshops, in addition to everything else he stays busy with like rehearsals, private teaching, writing new music, and being papa.

We look forward to unveiling our full summer offerings soon complete with marimba concerts, parades, summer-camps, and more. We have some dates at the bottom of the Upcoming Events list and will have full details soon.

Many blessings,
Arlyn and David

Practice
“Perhaps music feels great as long as you’re about fifteen feet away from the instrument, but as you move closer, a different energy takes over and your connection dwindles. . . How can we retain the bliss of freedom as we approach our instrument? We must let go of all desires and focus on love. To have the nectar flow through us, we must honor our inner being, and practice receiving what is being given.” Kenny Werner Effortless Mastery
