Vitamin D
Vitamin D, as best put by our former leaders, is Westminster Choir College's first official percussive ensemble, drum circle, and site of rhythmic exploration. Working under the Brazilian methodology of O Passo, founded by Brazilian music educator Lucas Ciavatta, we explore all its different pillars in numerous ways, with a clear focus on how to implement these ideals in our own musical endeavors, such as in all the ways to use them in teaching. 

We focus on Brazilian percussion repertoire, visual mapping of time, relying on the body's natural movement, different types of musical notation, and exploring rhythmic sight singing. We also create our own rhythmic compositional works and cannons while stepping as a team, all while breaking down every step of the process, allowing for questions to be asked, ideas to be tried, and connections to always be made. 

With a core value of being able to teach and lead our learnings, we highly encourage every member to lead an activity at least once every rehearsal, creating a safe environment for trial and reflection. Performances where we can both teach and demonstrate our learnings is also always a milestone and goal.
