Next 8 Week Drumming Class Session

Hello everyone,

I am starting another eight week drumming class session on June 11th. Each eight week session focuses on a new composition. Please let me know if you are planning to sign up for the eight week session.

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.  

Place: Goodman Community Center 149 Waubesa St, Madison, WI 53704, (608)[masked]. The class will be held in the Teen Center Loft

Day: Wednesday evenings.

Time: 7-8:30pm

Cost: $80 for an eight-class package or $13 for a drop in.
