Hand Drumming for Beginners and Beyond   


Explore the rhythms of West Africa, Cuba, and Brazil on the drums. We’ll play indigenous rhythms on the conga, ashiko, and djembe drums; you’ll learn how hand drumming is used to express and communicate. Drumming is a healthy way to keep you balanced and less stressed, plus you get to play with others in the class; It’s fun. Each week a new rhythm will be introduced for you to play and explore improvisation. Our universal love stems from the concept that drums are thought to be one of the oldest forms of music in the world and are a celebration of human history. A limited number of drums may be available to rent from the instructor. New and returning students are welcome. Note: Bring a hand drum of your choice to the first lesson, or you can rent from DrumConnection (call first: 781-316-8068). A $5 materials fee, for The DrumConnection Hand Drumming for Beginners Book, is payable to the instructor. No class for the week of Feb 20th - school vacation. No discounts apply.
