Spiritual drumming back with Outpost for final performance of the season.
Richard Reiter is back for his final spiritual drumming performance of the season, hosted by Outpost in the Burbs. The performance will be on Sunday, Dec. 14 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Spiritual drumming is an extremely popular expression, which can also be led in various ways. According to Spiritual Drumming, there is Guided Interactive Drumming, which is a highly structured drumming-based programs that are led by an individual or group to reach non-musical goals. Drum Classes are education-based drumming for the purposes of building musical skills and knowledge. Drum Ensembles are performance-oriented drumming groups who practice and perform music on drums, often for dance. Lastly, Clinical Improvisations are a drumming group within a Music Therapy session, led by a certified Music Therapist.
The Spiritual Drumming sessions from Outpost in the Burbs are led by Richard Reiter, who has been defined as a “professional musician” who also plays saxophone by the New York Times. According to the Times, “when he is not drumming in one of his regular spots, including the Outpost in the Burbs in Montclair, Puffin Cultural Forum in Teaneck or Rest Stop Rejuvenate in Rockaway, [Reiter] is leading ‘team-building’ circles for businesses and other groups.”
According to the Outpost in the Burbs website, “Interest continues to abound in this opportunity to explore drumming and percussion in an atmosphere of fun, openness and spirituality. Richard Reiter, a nationally acclaimed jazz musician who has studied drumming in Dakar, Senegal, invites adults and mature teenagers to join him for a ‘joyous feeling of unity and power.’ No musical training is necessary. Richard supplies drums, but you are encouraged to bring your own drums and percussion instruments.”
There is a $10 charge to attend, which also includes refreshments. However, Outpost would like possible participants to keep in mind that this activity is for “adults and mature teenagers only.”
