Drumming Class w/ Elmore

Adult Djembe Class:  Class Description: Beginner and intermediate drumming class. Learn basic djembe drumming techniques, and traditional and non-traditional interlocking djembe rhythms. Learn to solo and play accompaniments and dun duns. Understand how to use ghosting (tapping into the space between sound) to create your own unique rhythms and solo phrases and learn to move with the constant sound and vibration. Learn to relax so to transition from mental to muscle memory and reflexes to play the rhythms and solo patterns effortlessly. Understand the philosophy of time and rhythm.

What to bring: Djembe, paper, pencil, and if you have any recording device it would help. Let me know if you need a djembe to borrow during class.

Day: Wednesday evenings.

    Emore, you asked about future class etc ideas and I had one. What about a drum building workshop? Could use kits like the ones from goatskins. I know at least I would all kinds of about that!!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
