Free Your Drum with Amber Field!

8 Saturdays Sept 5-Oct 24, 11am-1230pm Pacific Standard Time

Free your rhythm & drum! Get expressive on your drum (djembe, doumbek, cajon, and conga recommended but pots, pans, and buckets welcome if you don't have access to a drum), rock out, and get funky! All levels welcome including total beginners. You will be amazed at what you can learn in 90 minutes!

We will drum 6 feet apart, with masks on, outdoors in a park. Bring a stool or chair to sit on. Class is limited to 10 participants.

In 8 fun weeks, we will cover:

--fundamental drum strokes--bass, tone, slap, pop, and touch

--good drumming technique

--world rhythms from Mali, Guinea, Egypt, Morocco, Brazil, Cuba & more

--funk, rock, blues & hip hop rhythms

--trance rhythms (opening and closing rhythms) from North Africa

--West African polyrhythms (we'll have 2-3 different rhythms going on at the same time)

--body percussion

This workshop is for all people: total beginners, the rhythmically challenged, and experienced drummers. Everyone will benefit.

Testimonials: “Amber’s class was outstanding. Amber is a superb teacher who makes learning drum polyrhythms accessible and fun. Amber sets up the songs and rhythms with varying levels of challenge, and always encourages us with heart and a smile. It’s more than just the rhythms – it’s really a magical experience that has liberated new possibilities in my music and my being.” Lisa F

“I recommend this class! Amber created a supportive space for learning, stretching, listening, and curiosity. I appreciate how you’re able to create a community while at the same time encourage the individual within it.”–Lucy A
