Drumming with the Critic:
A New Approach to an Old Relationship
Coming in February, 2018!


Dr. Randall Alifano, Ph.D. 
Psycho-Spiritual Counselor & Drummer
and

Barbara Borden 
Drummer, Keeper of the Beat

Drumming is a good way to engage with our critic when we think we have to drum perfectly to have fun and be musically acceptable. Actually, letting go of striving for perfection is what will allow us to relax and be present with the rhythmic flow of the music.
And when we’re relaxed we can have much more fun.

(no drumming experience necessary).


KEEPER OF THE BEAT DOCUMENTARY

Keeper of the Beat is a feature-length biographical documentary-in-progress about the life and music of Barbara Borden, an extraordinary 66-year-old drummer, composer, teacher and peacemaker. It is produced and directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, David L. Brown and follows Barbara’s journey from a pot-banging child of poor immigrant parents to a master percussionist and Ambassador of Peace.
