Teaching Info

Depending on your level: I will teach you the technique to get a good sound out of congas or bongos. Hand technique is the foundation of playing these instruments.We will work on different rhythms from various musical traditions. Darabuka also has a lot of technique but it is different to the conga and bongo, using more of the fingers than the whole hand. The lessons will be taylored for each individual to get the most out of each session.
