The Soundtrack of your Life with Percussionist Josh Robinson

A free online grief and healing workshop

Presented in partnership with Pinelawn Memorial Park and Arboretum

We all have a soundtrack that marks the many chapters and snapshots of our life experiences. Music can be like a time machine transporting us back to those places we’ve lived, relationships, vacations, car rides, and various adventures. This workshop is a musical reflection of your stories and the role music played in those moments with your loved ones. There is also a listening relaxation/wellness portion where Josh will play live soundscapes as you work, listen, and write. You can learn more about Josh on his website, joshrobinsondrums.com

Attendee Materials Needed: Pen and paper. Or printed out worksheet (will be provided in a workshop reminder email once you are registered).

Register for free on Pinelawn’s Eventbrite page.

More about Josh Robinson: Josh Robinson is a professional Percussionist, teaching artist, and drum facilitator. His website reads “Nourishing Inner Peace Through Hitting Things” which speaks to how drumming has helped him heal from loss, process challenges, and express himself beyond the limits of words. For the past 20 years he has used his skills, expertise, and life experience to share drumming and the many gifts it brings with thousands of people each year around the country. His approach is personal, passionate, creative, and intentional. He has an ability to connect with a wide range of audiences, put them at ease, and engage and unify them through rhythm. Josh has said “Yes!” to working with a broad range of communities over the years including “at-risk” youth populations, addiction/recovery, cancer patients, grieving children and families, corporations, and a variety of other communities. Through these experiences he has learned how his work connects and resonates with a variety of ages, backgrounds, cultures, and environments. Josh was invited to be the inaugural Thomas Jefferson University artist-in–residence where he has taught a Humanities course to medical students for the past 6 years. Josh’s work has been recognized by other communities by receiving a 2021 NJ Governors Award for excellence in Arts Education, ‘Performing Artist of the Year” by Young Audiences NJ/Eastern PA, “Community Hero Award” from The Uplift Center For Grieving Children in Philadelphia, and a “Service Award” from Rutgers University “Future Scholars” program for at-risk youth in Camden NJ. He was invited to BuzzFeed in LA, presented for “gPause” (Google’s wellness initiative) working with staff for employee wellness workshops, and has been a keynote speaker at a variety of Conferences and Symposiums. Josh is grateful to be on a heart-led path of helping people use drumming as a tool for healthy self-expression, community building, and connection while sharing his passion for drumming and helping others.
