For thousands of years the drum has provided people with a powerful basic tool to communicate, express themselves, form community and profoundly integrate the senses. This course will give you all the tools you’ll need to really enjoy yourself playing your drum. Our introduction to the rhythms of Brazil, Cuba, Guinea, Haiti, Mali, Senegal and Trinidad will allow us to experience the healing power of the drum and express our own voice. As you unleash your natural musical ability, you can experience joyous, ecstatic states of mind. Plan on having a fun time learning the traditional rhythm for the djembe, conga and ashiko drums. You can learn to play simply for your own enjoyment, or to play with other musicians. You are welcome to bring your own drum or rent from the instructor by calling 781-316-8068. LCE drums cannot be taken home. A $5 materials fee, payable to the instructor, will cover the cost of the workbook and all written materials.

Alan Tauber is a gifted percussionist, musician, facilitator and educator who has spent over 40 years sharing his passion for drumming and healing with the worldwide community.
