New: Drum and Rhythm Basics with Daniel Hirtz - Thursday evening
Jul 11, 2013 · 6:00 PM
This location is shown only to members
Join Daniel on three evenings and learn percussion basics. This class will teach you all you need to know to be able to play along in a drum circle, have confidence in what you are doing, use the drum circle to get better and enjoy drumming a whole lot more.
This is not a class that teaches any specific tradition. It is simply based on numbers and you will be able to apply what you learn here to any drum you’re playing. Once you’ve completed this class, you’ll also know if you want to go deeper into drumming. It lays the foundation for the advanced course that teaches you more complex rhythms, better sound/technique and start to develop the ability to play solo.
In three classes, we will build a foundation based on rhythmical exercises, sounds, hand techniques and practice it too. By spreading the class over three weeks, we’ll be able to repeat and deepen what we’ve learned the week before (especially if you practice in between).
THIS IS CLASS 1 OF THE 3 PART SERIES - ATTENDANCE IN THIS CLASS IS MANDATORY BEFORE YOU MAY ATTEND CLASS 2 AND 3
WHEN: 3 Thursday evenings 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. I might push this class back another week in order to have a good group of people. Full attendance recommended, if you miss one you can make it up later. Will be offered ongoing basis. Did you do this class before or didn't complete all 3 classes? Come and catch up! Don't worry about what class you attended before, just come to any class, repeat what you've learned and let's have fun!
WHERE: At my house, address will be provided upon registration
COST: $60 - $75 for all 3 classes (sliding scale, don’t let money stand in the way, call Daniel)
TO REGISTER PLEASE RSVP HERE OR CONTACT ME: Daniel Hirtz, email: daniel(at)breatheforpeace.org or call phone:[masked]
If the class is full - put yourself on the waiting list - I will get a new one started as soon as I have 3 people signed up :)
My name is Andrew Ecker and I have a deep Love for people music and culture and that is what drum circles are about, very simple we bring people together to play music dance but most importantly have fun. This group offers a way to connect with other people that enjoy music we offer classes, jams volunteer opportunities and most of all friendship. You may find us outreaching at a Church held picnic for the homeless or drumming at a dance studio we have gotten together many different places and had fun at all of them please come join us for an amazing time exploring music. Any of events unless otherwise notated will have drums are open no matter what level you are and are on a donation basis or free... please never let lack of money keep you away there are alwasy you can contribute to a community.
Culture is what we create when we play pray dance sing or drum culture is in the patient silence and the scream of angry joy and pain it is at the heart of the human experience and you are the culture of the drumming sounds.
