Wow! What a phenomenal weekend! Lucas and Cameron are pure genius! ~ Abby GreenBull, Founder and Principal Facilitator at Pulse Play Circles
Absolutely fantastic Rhythm for Youth training this weekend! Lucas Coffey and Cameron Tummel created a space for all of us to feel safe to learn, grow, teach, and facilitate, and the content was delivered in a clear, actionable format. I will definitely go out and use this material.
As a direct result of Rhythm For Youth, in one year I went from being too nervous to do much, to facilitating weekly circles solo and becoming director of our Drum Program. Cameron and Lucas create a very safe, encouraging, and stimulating workshop environment to take risks and try new things.
