    Class Description
    This class is geared towards those who have little or no prior drumming experience, but also easily accommodates intermediate players.
For the warm-up we cover the basics such as holding and striking a drum, basic coordination drills. We will explore African and Latin Rhythms on a variety of instruments including djembe, conga drum, cajons and other ethnic instruments.
