Come learn how to play 3-4 song styles from West Africa on a variety of African drums and hand-held percussion instruments. Conceived as a fun and low-pressure class, sessions will focus on group drumming, rhythmic organization, playing techniques, and musical expression. Designed for a range of abilities, previous experience with percussion or music reading is welcome but not required nor necessary. Music is taught within an oral tradition that utilizes direct demonstration and visual/aural cues, calling upon the student to merely listen, imitate, and gradually progress, eventually learning to attune with the group. Musical selections represent a rich caldron of African cultural traditions where people use drum ensembles for ceremonial activities, civic occasions, and recreational/social events. Instruments are provided.
