Comox Valley Drum And Movement Classes held its first session at Courtenay Elementary School on Tuesday, September 24. 

Hosted by Beau Stocker, students groove to the beat in a weekly class that combines drum performance with inner pulse through foot taps, steps, head bobs, hip sways, shoulder shrugs, elbow thrusts, and dance steps.

This may sound like a drum circle, but nothing could be further from the truth. That much was apparent when Mr. Stocker started unpacking and prepping for the class.

No drums here.

Instead of learning with typical drums, Mr. Stocker explores finding beats and rythmns with everyday objects. This may sound odd, but the classes laid back approach made for a fun and entertaining learning environment.

Classes are every Tuesday from 7PM and run until November 26. Participants are encouraged to bring their own percussion instruments. For more information, see http://www.cecss.org/event/comox-valley-drum-and-movement-class
