Beginning Hand Drumming  

For centuries the drum has provided people with a powerful basic tool to express themselves, to communicate, and to form community. Focusing on tone production, simple to complex rhythmic interaction, and the subtleties of drumming, you will play rhythms of West Africa, Cuba, and Brazil on different drums including conga, djembe, and ashiko. Each week a new rhythm, technique, and time pattern will be presented. After several weeks you will have acquired enough knowledge to begin to improvise and be comfortable in any drumming situation. No prior musical training is necessary. Please bring a conga, djembe, or ashiko hand drum. A limited number of drums may be available to rent from the instructor.
