You can drum!  Each week, participants will learn traditional rhythms from around the world – the 12-week semester will encompass learning about cultural backgrounds, rhythmic vocabulary, improvisation and self-expression with a community of diverse peoples.  In other words, an all out jam!  Hand drums such as djembe, conga, or doumbec/darbuka are recommended – info on how to purchase drums at a discount will be available.   Minimum group(s) of 6 required.  Questions?  Email Shawn Roberts - robertssm@appstate.edu
