Drum and Rhythm Basics Workshop
Join Daniel for the Drum and Rhythm Basics Workshop!
In just three hours learn percussion basics that will get you on the right path to drumming. This class will teach you all you need to know to be able to play along in a drum circle, have confidence in what you are doing, use the drum circle to get better and enjoy drumming a whole lot more. This is not a class that teaches any specific tradition. It is simply based on numbers and you will be able to apply what you learn here to any drum you’re playing.
Once you’ve completed this class, you’ll also know if you want to go deeper into drumming. It lays the foundation for more advanced courses that teaches you more complex rhythms, better sound/technique and start to develop the ability to play solo.
In three hours, we will build a foundation based on rhythmical exercises, sounds, hand techniques and lots of practice. Each step will be established considering rhythm theory, history, tradition and then experienced through practical exercises and “drumming games”.
All of the exercises are designed for beginners and also are a lot of fun for those who bring a bit of experience. We never move faster in this workshop than any participants ability allows. It is the whole point of communal music making: everybody is included. This is one of the amazing aspects of the kind of music we’ll be talking about: everybody can participate in it no matter what their skill level is. Once all the players understand how this works the beginner can fully participate while more experience players express at full ability while we all keep it together. This is some of the best fun anybody can be part of!
