Learn your favorite songs on the drum kit! In Rock Your Drums, we will take a School of Rock approach working through a handful of Classic Rock-Roll tunes and Motown era, Soul and R n B to get our basics covered. Having a couple of these tunes under our belt, we can take on a song of your choosing, classic or contemporary. Rock Your Drums will offer students the opportunity to develop their technique on the drum kit while also engaging and expanding their creativity. In our study of the classics we will be playing and exploring music throughout the 20th century offering a glimpse of music history.

Music has been on a long journey and it started with the hands and the voice. In Global Rhythms we will explore music through hand drumming, specifically the drumming techniques and rhythms of West-Arica and the fusion of Latin and African rhythms that became the backbone of Afro-Cuban music. We will develop and solidify hand drumming  technique for Djembe and Conga, while also learning the essential patterns, 12/8, Tumbao and Clave. These provide the launching pad for a deeper exploration of traditional rhythms out of West Africa.
*Students are encouraged to bring their own instruments/drums if they have them.
