Description of Drum Classes:
West African Drumming Level 1: This weekly class is perfect for the novice who is interested in learning to drum well, from the beginning, as well as experienced drummers who are new to Traditional West African music and are seeking to expand their repertoire. We will explore this powerful style, playing traditional rhythms on African drums. The history and traditional usage of each rhythm presented is also covered, and is an integral part of our studies.
West African Drumming Level 2: This eight week class continues the course of study begun in the Level One classes, and proceeds with the introduction of more sophisticated drumming material, such as involved breaks, songs, and beginning solo and improvisation techniques.
West African Drumming Level 3: The Level Three class continues the course of study begun in the previous two levels, and introduces students to dunun playing, advanced soloing techniques, and sophisticated choreographies.
