New Middle Eastern Drumming Class with John Price, March 8 - April 12
- Join Middle Eastern percussionist John Price for a special 6 week
drumming class at Music Explorium!
Students of all levels will have a great time playing the doumbek, also
known as Arabictableh or darbouka. We will mix drills, technique,
rhythms andimprovisation, and some good old-fashioned jamming so that
everyone canprogress. This is a wonderful instrument that is played
tucked underthe arm "finger style" and is used in classical, folk, and
pop Arabic music, as well as to accompany belly dancers.
John will teach classical Arabic technique, which allows dramatic sounds
without undue exertion.
Studentsinterested in riqq (tambourine) are welcome to bring theirs for
riqqinstruction or can use one of several loaners during the class.

Class Cost: $65 for 6 weeks (drop-ins welcome at $15 per class)
Dates: March 8 - April 12
Whatto bring: A doumbek. Several loaner drums are available, or I can
