Next Percussion Series!
Repertoire Analysis - Spring 2022
Repertoire Analysis - Spring 2022 is an 8-week series exploring the beauty, tradition and rich musical study of Arabic classical repertoire from the Golden Age (1930's-1960's). You will learn the essential vocabulary when performing with an Arabic or Middle-Eastern ensemble, with friends, or along with a recording. Focal points include popular rhythms, how to listen to a vocalist, how to play off of an oud player, and how to take a solo. You will leave this course with the ability to play with anyone, in any setting, and you will look, sound and feel authentic.
Classes are weekly, and will be both in person in NYC and on Zoom. All classes will be recorded and shared. Every other week, all percussionists meet 7-9pm. For Technique days, the schedule is as follows: 6:00pm- Darbuka, 7:00pm- Frame Drum, 8:00pm- Riqq.
