In this totally hands-on and FUN class led by Entrain member Sam Holmstock, participants will have an opportunity to learn the traditional rhythms of Cuba, West Africa, and Brazil and play them in an ensemble setting. Shekere, bells, and many of the Brazilian ancillary instruments will be part of the program. We'll explore the theory and practice in the use of percussion as ritual, communication, and recreation and learn the aspects and guidelines for the modern-day Drum Circle for fun and relaxation. No experience is necessary. This will be an opportunity for beginners to get their feet wet and for experienced players to hone their skills and for everyone to have fun. Adults and older kids/teens welcome. Drums will be provided for those who don’t already have them. Join us for just one class or sign up for all three!
