WATCH THE REPLAY!

Self-Care Summer School with "Teacher Brandon"

Just Wow. We were amazed and thrilled by Brandon's Free Intro to his Self-Care Summer School yesterday for a couple reasons: 

1) Brandon was absolutely fantastic and in top form leading the live group through a sequence of BODY PERCUSSION that anyone could do regardless of whether you have instruments or not. (And he also taught WPWT's Joule L'Adara how to play a drum groove on a Sansula :)

2) Everyone who joined the live Zoom STAYED ON THE ZOOM UNTIL THE END. This is unheard of! We expect for a free intro webinar that some folks will casually drop in and drop out. But no one did - people came and stayed (and the live chat was super engaged). We're so proud of this fabulous free content that will have you moving and tapping along, feeling better about yourself and the world for this one hour class. We highly encourage you to watch and participate along with the recording if you missed the live version (or watch again if you were there :) 

Our Brandon's WELLNESS PERCUSSION Self-Care Summer School is closed for this summmer, but contact us if you are interested in atteding the next Class with Brandon.

Q & A

Here are some Questions that came up during the webinar: 

 

Q: How can I access Brandon's Album?

A: "It's Bonus Time" by Brandon Blake on all Streaming Platforms!

Here's the link to hear it on Spotify

 

Q: Where do I access Clubhouse?

A: CLUBHOUSE is a social media app: download from your app store to smart phone or tablet. The Sounding Circles House hosts the Kalimba Campfire live on Clubhouse every Wednesday at 8pm PT (11pm ET) Join the house: https://www.clubhouse.com/house/sounding-circles

 

Q: Which Sansulas are Joule and Brandon playing in this video?

A: Brandon is playing the Sansula Basic (with a black ring around it and a paper head) Joule is playing the Sansula Deluxe with a goat-skin head. (There's also the Renaissance with a synthetic head.) The default tuning is A-minor however you can order the Sansula in any of the Koshi-Chime tunings or have one custom tuned to match your instruments. Shop Sansulas Here

 

Q: Can you tell me about the platform for your Sansula? It is a black circular pedestal?

A: In this video Joule is using the fitted Sansula bag made by Hokema for the instrument: it's padded inside to carry the instrument safely and you can use it as a platform for the perfect "Wah-Wah" effect (which is the sound produced by the Sansula by opening and closing the back of the instrument against a solid surface). Brandon is using a mouse pad on top of a table for his Sansula.
