Hand Drumming For Beginners

with Fanta Tauber

November 30 thru December 28, 2017 (5 sessions)

For thousands of years, the drum has provided people with a powerful basic tool to communicate, express themselves, form community and profoundly integrate the senses.

This course will give you all the tools you'll need to really enjoy yourself playing your drum. Our introduction to the rhythms of Brazil, Cuba, Guinea, Haiti, Mali, Senegal, and Trinidad will allow us to experience the healing power of the drum and express our own voice. As you unleash your natural musical ability, you can experience joyous, ecstatic states of mind.  

Plan on having a really fun time learning the traditional rhythm for the djembe, conga and ashiko drums. You can learn to play simply for your own enjoyment or to play with other musicians. DrumConnection's team teaching approach provides individualized instruction, and challenges and excites your senses. Bring your drum.  

A few rental drums may be available from the instructor at 781-316-8068 at $35.- for the duration of the course. You take the drums home with you!  If you'd rather not rent a drum that's okay with us, just use one of ours. A $5 materials fee, payable to the instructor, will cover the cost of the workbook and all written materials. Limited to 14.

(directions will be sent to students - EASY to get to and easy to park)

Status: This course is Open at this time.

PLEASE NOTE: Make-ups are possible during the semester on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Sunday. Any missed classes do not carry over into the next semester. Thanks for understanding.
