Learning to play traditional forms of music in a group I believe is the most accessible and quickest way for beginners to start experiencing the music making process. Traditional forms of music requires many people to play in unison in order to complete the drum kit where as contemporary forms usually have one main drummer. Learning how to sound as one drum kit with multiple individuals creates an environment in which everyone involved understands how rhythmic interactions/polyrhythms work, thus developing your hearing, feel and groove.
Music, exsists in every corner of the globe and in all cultures, It’s part of our DNA. I believe it’s genetically in everyone of us to play music. The way I teach music has evolved for many years. I try to create an open fun environment and It doesn’t matter what your skill level is everyone should be able to be apart of the music making process.
The power of playing music and drums in a group is exhilarating, you’ll see it on people’s faces! It doesn’t matter your level, age or ability, everyone can participate. Good music requires everyone to learn to work together promoting no competition. It’s magnetic and you can feel its power and energy.
