What does body percussion mean? How can you learn it?
Body Percussion (or Body music) is the art of generating sounds with different parts of our body, which we use as a real musical instrument.
Besides using our body to walk or performing our usual movements, we can use it to create music, without having to rely on traditionally approved musical instruments.
Our body is indeed a mechanical structure which can generate an infinite array of sounds.
Clapping hands, stamping feet, snapping fingers, whistling, producing sounds with your voice, clicking your tongue, etc.: these are just some of the endless means your body has to make music.
Human body is a wonderful and complex musical instrument that everybody can use. We will try to explore, get to know and harmonize it through the global approach of Body Percussion.
