The next two weeks bring two amazing events. First, on February 1st, 5:30-8PM, in Room D of Oakham House, come hang out for a social night of metal music at our METAL Appreciation Night! Refreshments provided, and you could also win your own copy of Metal Evolution, the documentary series on DVD! But that's not all! On February 6th, 7-9PM, in Oakham Lounge, we're bringing two top jazz musicians, Ron Davis (piano) and Mike Downes (bass), bring their skills and experience as long-time professional musicians to Ryerson for an incredible workshop: The Jazz Life: Making Music and Making a Living in Music. They're going to play tunes, talk about the music-making process, recording, the music business, and share their views on what it's all about to be professional musicians. It will be a great evening of live music and lively discussion. This amazing event is free to attend, and refreshments will be served! You do NOT want to miss out on these two events!

In this hands-on workshop, drummer Max Senitt will demonstrate basic playing techniques on a variety of hand drums and percussion instruments, and then apply the techniques to some basic rhythms that can be found in many parts of the world. Music is a universal language. When we break it down to its "skeleton," we can see how small the world really is!
