My course is called "Afro-Cuban/Caribbean Drumming and Music" for the Conga drum. In this course you will learn thru a series of exercises and drills to 'train' the hands to become 'balanced' with stroking, sound development and technique. You will learn up to 100 rhythms and 'styles'(Pop/Rock/Salsa/Latin Jazz/Funk/Rumba/African and Brasilian, and others). The Clave- Son and Rumba you will also learn, and how they are adapted to music in conjunction with playing "in Clave' on the Conga drum.
You will learn how to write out what you will learn from me and create your own 'workbook' as I like to say "First we work, then we Play! on the Conga drum. You will learn about the 'roots' and "history" of the men who brought the drum from Cuba to the United States and their musical legacy's.
You will learn how to play in a 'band ensemble' and what the 'role of the Conga drummer' is, and what is expected of him/her.
Instruction is once a week at your time availability. You will have homework, be assessed and tested periodically.
