Body Percussion

(Percussion Corporelle)

Course description:


Body Percussion takes the rhythm back to its place of origin: the body.

To experience rhythm in the flesh and bones of the body is discovering that we are walking musical instruments, always ready to sound out.

Feel the nurturing and heart-warming effects of being fully embodied.

La percussion corporelle ramène le rythme à son lieu d'origine : le corps.

Expérimenter le rythme dans la chair et les os, c'est découvrir que nous sommes des instruments de musique ambulants, toujours prêts à résonner. Sentez les effets nourissants et réconfortants d'être complètement incarné.

Teaching approach:


This is a hands-on course. Every rhythm, every melody, will be learned taking it directly into the body. Yet, instruction about music notation will be provided if a student is interested in that as well.

Courses will be a mix of training rhythmic skills (coronation and tempo) and learning of the culture behind the rhythms.

Course program:


We will be experimenting with both traditional rhythms and modern approaches: the former using African and South American patterns passed down for their activating, healing, and strengthening effects on the body; the latter for developing technique and coordination.

"Bien que je n'aie eu qu'une classe avec Geremia, et que j'aie dû reporter la poursuite de mon apprentissage à plus tard, j'ai eu l'occasion d'apprécier la qualité de son enseignement. Il était très attentif à mes besoins, prêt à s'adapter à ma situation particulière, et ce, avec enthousiasme et compétence. "Marion, Montreal

ABOUT THE TEACHER

My name is Geremia Lorenzo Lodi. If I were born in 1113, I would describe myself as an alchemist of music, because what I do is transform energy into sound, which I then use to transform the body. But since I was born in the 20th century, I usually go by music educator.

I have been befriending the power of music since I was a child. I started playing the flute when I was 8. This long lasting relationship taught me most of what I know of music and has served as the base of my musical and personal beliefs.

I believe in people’s desire for connecting and change. I believe that everybody desires to develop their innate skills if showed how. I believe in community work, because each person needs others to improve and become fully human. I believe in being real, honest and loyal. I believe in the power of music in its myriad forms. I have experienced it both as a student and as a teacher.


Je m'appelle Geremia Lorenzo Lodi. Si j’étais né en 1113, j'aurais facilement pu me décrire comme un alchimiste de la musique, puisque dans le cadre de mon travail, je transforme de l'énergie en son, puis j’utilise le son pour transformer le corps. Puisque je suis né au 20ième siècle, je me présente généralement comme un éducateur musical. J'ai apprivoisé le pouvoir de la musique depuis que je suis enfant quand j'ai commencé à jouer de la flute traversière à l'âge de huit ans. Cette relation unique m'a appris beaucoup de choses sur la musique et m'a servi de base à mes convictions musicales et personnelles.

Je crois au désir des gens de se connecter et de changer. Je crois que tout le monde souhaite développer ses compétences innées, si seulement on lui montrait comment. Je crois au travail communautaire, car chaque personne a besoin des autres pour s’améliorer. Je crois au pouvoir de la musique sous ses multiples formes. Je l'ai vécu en tant qu'étudiant et en tant qu'enseignent.


TEACHER EDUCATION

Masters Degree in Music Education, McGill University, Montreal
Bachelors Degree in Science of Education, University of Bergamo, Italy
Music Diploma: classic flute, Conservatory "Guido Cantelli", Novara, Italy

My curiosity took me to Montreal in 2010 to acquire a Masters in Music Education devoted to the role of the body in learning processes and music creation. This research inspired my workshops in body percussion and vocal improvisation that I currently offer for children, youth and adults.

TEACHER EXPERIENCE

I had the chance to start working as a music teacher early in my life, even before finishing my degrees in Music and Education in Italy. Since then, I have had the opportunity to teach in many different settings and to different age groups: children, youth and adults.
I worked as coordinator of a performative art project in Nunavik for 3 consecutive school years. I defined a new program and I shaped its form little by little from the instances of the students and the community.
I have been facilitating workshop in Body Percussion and Vocal Improvisation for 5 years.
