Got rhythm? Want rhythm? Try World Drumming with Sam and start 2018 with a BANG!

In this totally hands-on totally fun class with Entrain's master drummer Sam Holmstock, students will learn traditional drumming rhythms and play them in an ensemble setting. Students will learn rhythms and hand drumming technique from the drum cultures of Africa, Cuba, Brazil, Haiti, and the Middle-East. We will trace the evolution of world rhythms from their tribal roots to present-day musical contexts of Hip-Hop and International Pop styles. This class will explore the use of percussion as ritual, communication, and recreation from around the world. We will also explore the aspects and guidelines for the modern day Drum Circle for fun and relaxation. NO EXPERIENCE is necessary. This is an opportunity for beginners to get their feet wet and for experienced players to hone their skills and for everyone to have fun. Try the class with a friend for the perfect way to kick off your weekend! 

Drums will be provided, but bring your own if you like.
