For thousands of years the drum has provided people with a powerful basic tool to communicate, express themselves, form community and profoundly integrate the senses.
This course will give you all the tools you'll need to really enjoy yourself playing your drum. An experience of drumming that will allow us to experience the healing power of the drum and express our own voice. As you unleash your natural musical ability, you can experience joyous, ecstatic states of mind.
This course is appropriate for those who drum a lot as well as those who only know a little. If you are a total beginner you should check out or Tuesday and Thursday offerings.
