Intro to Middle Eastern drumming

An experienced Middle Eastern drum teacher will start with the basics.

Learn drum strikes and proceed to rhythm and rhythm combinations using call and response techniques.This class is ideal for belly dancers and those interested in belly dance, drum circle people, African or Native American drummers who wish to expand their repertoire, or anyone interested in the world percussion scene. We'll learn rhythms from Egypt, Turkey, Greece, Morroco, etc.Classes are scheduled for the second Tuesday of each month for September, October, and November, and will run longer if there is interest.A few loaner drums will be available. Bring a dumbek or djimbe or other hand drum if you have one. Tambourines and zills will also work, so bring them!


No cost, but there will be a donation box to pay for the space, tea, water, etc

    Hey everyone! This is an instructor lead drum class not a drum circle. If you are interested in learning different rhythms to play on your hand drum through a call and response method of learning this is a great opportunity. The instructor will go over the basic elements of the drum and how to read the provided sheet music. Then he will lead the class in different Middle Eastern rhythms. The amount of rhythms you will learn in this class will depend on the skill set and participation of the entire class.

    I could use a stress reliever. A drum circle should be perfect!
