How familiar are you with drumming (starting, advancing, pretty good)?


Do you have a drum to play that works well for you?

Several. Two of my favorite drums started as old wooden bowls. I have made many single sided hand drums and several large Pow-wow floor drums. The largest project is a table that has on occasion functioned very well as the bass blaster of bass drums. It can be seen here: The Antique Wagon Drum is also a notable project and sounds well. As a sculptural object in a gallery setting it cannot be played at all or touched. Rawhide rattles are also in my list of things that have been made.

What type of drumming do you like to do? (Djembe, traditional African, Native American, shamanic, bonfire, Middle Eastern, etc.)?

African and Native American which includes Singing.

Have you ever taken drum lessons & are you interested in lessons and workshops?

I have not had any formal lessons in drumming. Someone recently asked how long I have been singing Native songs(and drumming). After some thought, I responded a long time.

Have you ever attended a kirtan event, and if so, how did you become interested in kirtan?
