Award winning percussionist, composer and educator, Tom Teasley, will offer a series of workshops into his unique world of rhythm and sound. Tom has traveled the world as a cultural envoy for the U.S. Department of State and will share musical examples of his travels as well as stories of the cultures from which this music emanates. He is currently working virtually with the US Embassy in Port au Prince, Haiti on a series of percussion workshops in addition to music business presentations. Other travels have taken him to China, Iraq, Korea, Oman, Jerusalem, Bahrain and others. Tom will also share his work on creating music for theatre which has earned him seven Helen Hayes Nominations and three awards. The program will consist of many musical and instrument demonstrations and performances and encourage participation among the participants. Tom has equipped his studio with the latest technology for virtual presentations with professional sound interface, microphones, camera and more. All of our hearts beat in universal rhythm. Please join us for these exciting workshops.

World of Rhythm and Sound will take place every Wednesday and Thursday from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., starting May 19 through June 24.
