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 fun time learning the traditional rhythm for the djembe, conga and ashiko drums. Registration is required. Bring your drum. Rentals available.

A $5 materials fee, payable to the instructor, will cover the cost of the workbook and all written materials. Limited to 15.
