Intro to Middle Eastern drumming

An experienced Middle Eastern drum teacher will start with the basics.

Learn drum strikes and proceed to rhythm and rhythm combinations using call and response techniques.This class is ideal for belly dancers and those interested in belly dance, drum circle people, African or Native American drummers who wish to expand their repertoire, or anyone interested in the world percussion scene. We'll learn rhythms from Egypt, Turkey, Greece, Morroco, etc.Classes are scheduled for the second Tuesday of each month for September, October, and November, and will run longer if there is interest.A few loaner drums will be available. Bring a dumbek or djimbe or other hand drum if you have one. Tambourines and zills will also work, so bring them!
