"Marytha is OUTSTANDING! Inspirational, creative, supportive and an amazing teacher. She can teach a wide variety of abilities from the absolute beginner to someone with musical experience." Michelle T. (Music Together instructor and drum student )
In this introductory workshop we will focus on technique,
the language of the drum, African rhythms, playing in
community and fun!! The class is geared toward beginners, people who have no drum or musical experience but would like to literally try their hand at it. Please bring an African style drum, (djembe, ashiko, or conga) and a rhythm-ready heart.
“Go drum with Marytha if you can. She's the best!” --Nancy Holland ( professional musician, conductor and singer)
