Amazing! 6-8 weeks of Interpretive Drumming lessons as part of the ninth grade Earthschooling Waldorf music block. As an optional add-on, or for students not following a pure Waldorf curriculum schedule, this lesson can also be used for students in G6 and up and can be repeated on a yearly basis. In this 2 part – 60 minute series, our experienced drumming teacher takes you through drumming skills taught to her by her own teachers. These include a style unique to her, but inspired by African drumming traditions.
This class is meant to teach the student some basic traditional drumming skills which are used across many cultures and musical traditions. It is not specifically an African Drumming class.
In this video she talks about the history of African drumming and her visits to Africa. She talks about different rhythms, practice sessions, traditional songs, cultural applications and much more. The video will show you, as the teacher or student, how each ten-minute section of video can be taught, learned and practiced over one week of music lessons. No one will want to miss this one! This is “officially” a G9 lesson block. However, you can teach it earlier. Or, like our class did, you can use it over multiple years.
