R.I.T.M.O.Rhythm Workshop with Tupac Mantilla
R.I.T.M.O. is a holistic learning methodology created by Tupac Mantilla, which combines the use of the body as our main musical instrument and multiple cognitive skills. The activities are guided through contents around body percussion and body rhythm and complemented through processes such as neuroplasticity and flow, that allow long term memory and complex movement integration and provide an overall holistic learning experience.
R.I.T.M.O. Education focuses on sharing rhythmic concepts that improve the individual and collective rhythmic sense, providing a complex multi-layered experience that enhances the cognitive capacity and brain activity, while developing technical tools, as well as efficient pedagogic strategies for various teaching contexts.
The methodology is applicable with heterogeneous groups as well as different levels of experience, allowing every participant to improve his/her individual skills, regardless of being a beginner or a professional musician. At the same time, it is highly efficient for processes of group-formation and group-synchronization.
