Hello Ann (& all).?
Thanks for sending this. This class is open for EVERYONE. If you are just getting into drumming, Great! When we reworked the times of the course I was thinking about the intimidation factor. Now, the first 30 minutes will be perfect to work on a little technique while opening up to the sounds of the drum. Then when your hands are warmed up and buzzing with energy its time for the polyrhythmic joy of multi-part rhythms. The beauty of this style of music is the many voices and range of difficulty in the parts.
No matter your skill level we can find a place for your (drum)voice.?Many traditional rhythms represent aspects of the village and community. Not everyone in the village is running and jumping. The steadiness of a Sekuru ('uncle') walking with a cane slowly through a dirt path is just as important as the child's laughter or the breathe of a woman sewing on the porch.?
I hope to see you (all) in class,
Jason 'Tawa' Isla
Don't stop the Rhythm
