AN INTRODUCTION

If you are interested in learning more about BeRhythmic, this video provides a good intro to rhythmic practice, the benefits and how it works. 

Our Vision

to help people fully engage with life, community + earth

to inject music, movement + mindfulness into every day

using a variety of somatosensory exercises, rhythmic classroom interventions, mindful regulation techniques

ROOT

Take care of the animal, so you can be human.

The color red and the circle are indicators of our Root practice. With this series we focus on core elements of rhythm such as the heartbeat, breath and nature.

By keeping things very simple and unified we can find safety and community with these foundational patterns and practices.

 

REGULATE

Rhythm is life and life is rhythm.

The color yellow and the rhombus are indicators of our Regulate practice. With this series we use patterns and movements that both regulate and stimulate the brain and body.

These exercises are great little brain breaks, warm up songs or can be used during transition time. 

RELATE

Start simple and create community.

The color green and the triangle are symbols for our Relate series. With these exercises, we focus on relational games and songs where both teachers/parents and students/kids get a chance to listen, follow then lead and express themeselves.

These exercises are also good for brain breaks and just a few minutes of regulating ourselves can be a great way to calm down and be engaged in the moment.

INSPIRATION, TRAINING, EDUCATION

Luke Graner, BFA Graphic Design, Minnesota State University Moorhead. ONE LINER: Graphic design and website development pay the bills but the middle school jazz drummer, self-taught troubadour, rock band rhythm section, and local one man looper guy is a teacher at heart

Ever since I grabbed my first big djembe, I’ve sought to create a music experience for communities, especially kids, like that of the drum circle. Inspired by my middle school English teacher dad (he had requested a good beat to go with one of his early rhythmic learning concepts),  I created a simple body rhythm that became a hit in his classroom and truly helped kids learn.   

Informed by my drum circle facilitation training in Holyoake’s Drumbeat model (combined with my music performance background + loop / layer composing work), I began to create a youth drum circle program. The Vibe Project as it was called, became a favorite activity for kids at school, in youth groups and special events.  The spark for BeRhythmic lit as a trainee in the Neurosequential Model and eventually as a collaborator with the Neurosequential Network, Dr. Bruce Perry (ChildTrauma Academy Senior Fellow) and yep, my dad Steve Graner (NME project director, CTA Fellow). 

They provided me with the chance to learn about the brain, about people and what rhythmic regulation can do to help us relate, learn, teach, love and live. Now I am taking my design and web skills along with these awesome training sessions and collaborations to create the BeRhythmic.com program, practice, music, online (and in person) training experiences. So here we are. Please reach out to me directly at berhythmic.com@gmail.com with questions / ideas / requests and for sure, critiques. We are just getting started. 

Thanks for stopping by! 

Be Rhythmic,
Luke
