Knowing how to contact the drum to produce the different tones, proper body position for hands, arms, elbows, and feet when playing is the key to enjoying your instrument fully. When done right you will produce an efficient and relaxed playing style. You will gain valuable knowledge, skills, techniques, grooves and rhythms with immediate practical application. I will teach you important music concepts about Improvising. Reviews: 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 I just wanted to take a second and tell you again how much I loved the lesson yesterday!!!!! Thanks so much….it was great fun and I learned a TON already. . …you 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).

    This is part of the http://www.Virginia-World-Rhythms-Drum-Circle.com group. This MeetUp will focus mainly in the area of Richmond VA but not limit it possibilities to enjoy drum circles in other parts of the state and beyond.

    If you are on Facebook you should join our Facebook Group Page to make it easier to invite people who are not in meetup and allow us to extend and build our membership to more drummers. https://www.facebook.com/groups/RichmondRhy... (https://www.facebook.com/groups/RichmondRhythmsDrumCircle/)

    What's our group about?

    Basically, it's playing and hand drumming. It's about meeting other like-minded people and making music. It's about sharing your inner Rhythm Spirit with everyone. We accept one and all--if you've never played before, if you've been playing for years, if you are a dancer and always wanted to try drumming, it's completely open. You can try a few different kinds of drums and shakers and bells. It's also about making new friends and creating a new family of friends. We are family friendly! Bring the kids along; hey, bring the Grandparents along too. All will have a good time--I promise

    My name is Arthur and I am the Drum Circle Facilitator/Organizer Hand Drum Instructor for this group. I'm organizing drum circles from Richmond VA all the way to Virginia Beach. This website is for players in the Richmond VA area. We meet at least once a month at the Sam Ash Music Store. Sometimes we attend special events for charity, good causes like drumming with the physically handicap, Special Needs, Assisted Living Homes, drumming for the Cure for Cancer and Peace Movements.

    So Join up by paying just $7 for a one year membership that lets you know where all the Drum Circles are. Paid member benefit include Discount to Music Store.

    We will include as many Drum Circles as we find them too. There are Special one day events and multi-day Drum Circles to fulfill all of your drumming desires. This is where you will come to experience the incredible power of rhythms that transform your inner being. You can find out how to get Hand Drum Lessons (http://drumyourdream.com/hand-drum-lesson/) or have a Drumming Party (http://drumyourdream.com/drum-parties/) for your Celebrations.
