A Taste of Rhythm – a drumming playshop

On our musical journey we will explore rhythms from the cultures of Africa and Cuba and play on the dynamic djembes, bass drums and the melodic congas.

We will have plenty of time to dive into the different voices of the grooves, to feel their dynamics and move closer to their inherent magic.

We will playfully learn basic techniques, rhythm understanding and how to play as a group – and be surprised at how much music can be born in such a little time.

These afternoons are meant for people to follow their attraction for drumming and to try out their skills in a playing environment. Or as a stimulating musical expedition with friends or family.

The motto is: Feel the beat!

Plenty of instruments are available – your own are of course most welcome.

These playshops will happen 4 times a year in my music studio in Uster, Kreuzstrasse 6.
