Basics of Hand Drumming for the Drum Circle
Tuesday, March 11, 2014
6:30pm – 9:30pm
This 3-hour course will introduce you to:
Common types of hand drums, hand percussion, and "found" percussion
Most common drumming positions, tones, and strokes
Basics of rhythm including those from Africa, the Middle East, and around the world; and
Experience of participating in the drum circle--an ancient practice that builds community, good will, and well-being.
The course requires NO musical or drumming experience. Hand drums and other percussion are provided, but if you have one in the attic gathering dust--bring it! This is a participatory learning experience, not a performance--so come prepared to learn and play in a supportive environment. We will gently encourage each other to join in, participate, and develop new skills and confidence!
