TaKeTiNa Rhythm Process is a musical group process that combines voice, movement and rhythm using the body as the primary instrument. This is a fun and engaging workshop led by the inimitable John Anderson, certified TaKeTiNa teacher visiting Melbourne. No musical experience necessary and everyone welcome!

About TaKeTiNa:

In your daily life, TaKeTiNa can help you to:

  • Experience a profound state of peace, relaxation and inner silence
  • Develop presence and expanded perception
  • Improve your attention and ability to stay focused for long periods
  • Manage chaotic life situations with creativity, humour and effectiveness
  • Decrease your anxiety about making mistakes and always getting things right

If you are a musician or performer, TaKeTiNa can help you to:

  • Discover a deep and embodied understanding of rhythm
  • Stay attuned to your audience while performing in a natural and spontaneous way
  • Realize your potential with improvisation and composition in any craft
  • Increase competence with instrumental playing and improvising


I've been playing music for 58 years.... since I was 10. What I love about TaKeTiNa, which I chanced upon 20 years ago (and have been studying intensively for 5) is how it brings together any group of people using the simplest method: the voice.... speaking rhythmic syllables (eg. "ta ke ti na"), then the feet stepping, then the hands clapping.... and finally the voice singing in response to the leader's calls. It's a graceful and flexible process in which deep integration of body-mind-spirit is possible. It's now my music of choice.... I like to call it "Bare bones Music"
