The percussion studio is open to anyone who wants to learn, feels the rhythm, and seeks a sense of community and being in a harmonious environment together. The studio was founded only recently – in 2020, and its head and founder is Gintautas Gascevičius.
Everyone is invited to the studio – everyone who appreciates the joy of listening or performing music and seeks for a community where they can feel free and welcomed.
Currently, in the Percussion studio classes for the group "Drum Circle" are organized. The main idea of the "Drum Circle" is to create a community where the audience play instruments. A person feels the rhythm while playing the drums, and in the company he has the opportunity to learn not only from others but also from himself. Learning takes place in a team of people through mirrored, critical thinking.
