Matthew Marsolek and Tracy Topp
teach basic West African drumming skills online on five consecutive Monday nights from 7-8:15 p.m. MST. Learn all the basics of West African hand drumming: rhythm awareness, tones and technique, and traditional rhythms. Participants will also receive email links to recordings of the classes, charts of the rhythms in a box notation format, and mp3 recordings. Everyone is welcome! (If you don't have a drum, you can fashion a temporary drum out of a bucket or use the bottom of a cooler or other object.) In addition, these Zoom classes will feature live djembe and dundun accompaniment and three camera angles which include a front view and overhead cameras above the djembe and dundun drums.
