Drum Basics

  • Jan 23, 2013 · 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.

    Great class, everyone! The new drummers did really well, everyone picked up Sunjata Fasa quickly, good questions were asked (and hopefully answered), and we even got the round going on J's middle eastern rhythm. The 10-part polyrhythms we created at the end of the evening were beautiful! Most importantly of all, we laughed and had fun!

    I would love to, but I work until 8 tonight, and that means I'll probably be wiped out by the time I'm done. Have a great time though!
