What you'll learn in this drum class:

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

This course will give you all the tools you'll need to really enjoy yourself playing your drum. An experience of drumming that 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. 

This course is appropriate for those who drum a lot as well as those who only know a little. If you are a total beginner you should check out or Tuesday and Thursday offerings. If you miss a class we prefer that you make it up during the current semester. We will help you out with this. It's s great way to check out another class, another teacher.

Plan on having a fun time learning the traditional rhythms for the djembe and dunun drums. You can learn to play simply for your own enjoyment or to play with other musicians. Our approach provides individualized instruction, and challenges and excites your senses. Bring your drum or you may rent one for $45.- for the semester.
