About Arthur:

For six year, Arthur has taught in the Hampton Road Area, the art of Hand Drumming for relaxation, fun, musicality and spiritual awakening. Each person has rhythm inside of them. I help you find your inner rhythms to play with everyone. My specialty is helping you build confidence to play for yourself and with everyone in a Drum Circle.


By James Johnson For Joys of Djembe playing.
Arthur is such a wonderful hand drum instructor; I only wish I had started with him in the very beginning. I say this because it is now harder to unlearn the incorrect way that I was playing all these years, before he showed me how to play correctly. I can now get all the different sounds out of my drum and sound really good. Also, my hands don't hurt like they use to. He approaches each lesson with enthusiasm and humor. It makes learning a lot easier. I have had some other instructors and Arthur is by far the best. I don't usually write reviews for anyone but I was inspired to do so in this case.

By Doc Ricks For Drum Circle Drumming for the beginner
VERY REFRESHING! I thoroughly enjoyed my first lesson with Art Lopez! I feel more confident than ever! I look forward to the day that I participate in a drum circle for the first time!

By Colleen Wittig for Beginner Hand Drumming on djembes, congas and other instruments Just wanted to take a second and tell you again how much I loved the lesson yesterday!!!!! Thanks so was great fun and I learned a TON already. . are a fun instructor with a lot of knowledge and your love for the drum is apparent.

By Clarice Mota on for Beginner Hand Drumming on djembes, congas and other instruments
Arthur is very persistent on teaching the right way to hit the drum and one can feel confident that he will not allow you to make a mistake. He has the right approach and I have been able to develop a playing technique much faster than the last time I had drumming lessons (not from him, of course).

it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
