Learning in Rhythm . . .
“Ed Keegan of Rhythm Connect did a wonderful job of engaging my students and tying in many different learning styles (hands-on, visual, cooperative, and auditory) during his rhythm workshop. Even though we were all playing as individuals, we were working together as a team! He brought enthusiasm and knowledge to every minute we spent with him—what a learning experience!”
~Jacqueline Gottko, 3rd Grade Teacher–Northside School
“This workshop was a wonderful learning experience! I will definitely take these ideas and techniques and apply them to my students.”
~Becky, Middle School Music Teacher, North Syracuse Central School District–Rhythm Facilitation Training
“This workshop was fun and informative. I especially enjoyed the level to which attendees were able to participate and ‘experience’ the group drumming.
~Karen, Music Teacher
“Excellent! Fun! Educational! I have never played an instrument but I will be using these techniques in my third grad classroom to enhance learning, especially in Math.”
~Ellen, 3rd Grade Teacher, North Syracuse Central School District– Rhythm Facilitation Training
Working in Rhythm . . .
“Ed Keegan from Rhythm Connect took a true interest in our leadership development institute. He met with us beforehand to customize and align his program with our overall theme and objectives. Everyone had a great time drumming and learning how to get in rhythm with each other. I highly recommend Rhythm Connect for any group event. They are professional and lots of fun at the same time!”
~Rebecca Ahrns-Walker—Manager, St. Ann’s Community
“Thank you so much for a GREAT presentation on Saturday. I think I had a smile on my face the whole time you were presenting. I needed the presentation more than you would know. Being the conference chair, I don’t have much down time, except when the keynote is “on” and your presentation was so engaging and practical for the audience. You got it just right. It was wonderful to see the participants fully engaged in the presentation and my Executive Director said it was the best presentation she has seen at the conference day.”
~Isabelle J, CCWD Conference Chair
“I am not normally a proponent of team building exercises, but I thought the rhythm event was the exception. I thoroughly enjoyed the session and if I ever have the occasion to do some team building, Ed Keegan would be the first call on my list”
~Sylvia, Systems Analyst
“Ed’s joy is infectious. His precise yet casual teaching style makes him easy to interact with and not at all intimidating. Ed does his homework and customizes his training program to be relevant to a variety of topics and people. Who knew that a group training exercise could be so much fun?”
~John Miner Director of Administration, Physics Department Cornell University
Living in Rhythm . . .
“The group rhythm sessions were not only fun, but also relevant to the retreat and my own life.”
~Karen, Accounting Supervisor
“I liked the idea that you didn’t have to be a musician in order to be a part of the event. The event just reinforces that everyone plays a part—no matter how big or small. It really made me think more about the big picture—life. The event was awesome!”
~Monica, Computer Programmer
“Ed added a dimension to the retreat that gave the intrinsic heartbeat a voice we could all share.”
~Paul, Video Producer
“Before the event, I felt some stress and a little tense. After the event, I felt very relaxed. I had my blood pressure taken within a couple of hours of the event and it was lower than it normally is!”
~Nancy, Department Manager
