Who We Are
Rhythm Connect is a unique family-friendly interactive music experience ~
birthday parties, school field trips & assemblies, rhythm events, classes, team building, senior programs and much more!
If it’s true that necessity is the mother of invention, then rhythm is the daddy! Without rhythm nothing is sustainable. Our very existence depends on rhythm for survival. From the rotation of the earth to our heart beat . . . rhythm is the heart of effectiveness.
- Rhythm vs. “Arrhythmia”
Rhythm is simply a regular recurring pattern and comes from a Greek word meaning “to flow” (gives new meaning to the expression, “Going with the flow . . .”). When we are in rhythm we know it with our entire being.
Arrhythmia, on the other hand, is the antithesis to rhythm. It is a disturbance in the rhythm of the heart. It’s when things are out of sync, abrupt, chaotic, and we feel it just as powerfully.
Rhythm and arrhythmia apply in the class room, conference room, or living room. It’s about how we learn, how we work, and how we live. Effective patterns produce a sustainable rhythm that results in an empowering learning environment, engaged employees, or personal well-being. Unhealthy patterns are dysfunctional and arrhythmic, resulting in stress, disengagement, poor performance, burnout, and ineffectiveness.
- Our Mission
Ed Keegan is the owner/facilitator of Rhythm Connect. “My desire is to help people find their own rhythm and to empower people to learn, work, & live in rhythm!” -Ed Keegan
- Our Approach
Rhythm is both a metaphor and the method. We facilitate learning, working, living, and playing in rhythm through hands-on–literally–interactive rhythm programs and events. Each person is given a rhythm instrument and experientially participates as a group. A trained facilitator leads the group through various rhythm segments linked to the desired outcomes. We have great success working with all types of organizations–schools, businesses, and non-profits–and people, including those who consider themselves “rhythmically challenged!”
