Universal Language Room
with Jason Caplan
The Universal Language Room is an interactive and community experience through improvisational music. The goal is an instant sense of unity and inclusion among participants. The experience is led by a trained facilitator who demonstrates the basics of music improvisation with drums and simple melodic instruments. Participants play in time, and improvise with each other, culminating in a song played by the entire group. The joy of music and community is actualized within an hour's time, and participants have a strong sense of belonging and overall well-being. Participants are invited to bring their own instruments or use one of the percussion instruments provided.
