Drum Basics

  • March 5, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We cover techniques and basic djembe rhythm parts, and have added dunun rhythms to our curriculum. Relaxed, inclusive environment. You don't have to know ANYTHING to attend.

If there are new students, we will go over the basics at the beginning of the class - that is how to hit the drum for bass, tone and slap, intonation, etc.

We will start working on rhythms at 7:00, and finish around 9:00. It's fun! Just ask anyone who's attended in the past.

Bring your drum.  If you need to borrow a drum, please contact me so I can arrange to have enough available.

Love offering of $5-$10 to attend.

    Good class last night! We focused on rhythms in the Mandjani time signature, and worked on 11 different djembe parts. Everyone took a turn on dununs, too! I think we're ready to try it out on Monday night, with more confidence. Great work, everyone!!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
