Advanced African Drumming
Advanced African Drumming with Angela Scharfenberger
This class will meet offsite in an open air location and a signed waiver (below) is required to complete your registration.
In Advanced African Drumming, we will build on the rhythms we learned in previous semesters of African Drumming. We will further explore polyrhythm, adding new rhythms with more complex drumming patterns. We will also dive deeper into understanding the music in cultural context.
We will further develop soloing and breaks in an African drum ensemble. Through the teaching of repetitive advanced lead parts, students will begin to develop an ear for improvise within the tradition. Angela draws on 25 years of experience learning from and performing beside master drummers.
Prerequisite: African Drumming 3.
