Fall 2017 | Spring 2018

Saturdays in June: 6/9, 6/16, 6/23, 6/30, 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Open to music educators, church music directors, and people who’ve just always wanted to try drumming.

A unique group drumming class for adults that combines West African and Brazilian-based rhythms and instruments.
This class is conceived with players of any level of musical and drumming experience – including none – in mind and its aim is to allow people to experience the sheer joy that music from these parts of the world evokes. Although its presentation bears some resemblance to drum circles, all instruments will be presented in a context that is connected to their origins. Instruments will be provided, but you may also bring your own djembes, dununs, or Brazilian bateria.
