African Music Ensemble
AFRICAN MUSIC ENSEMBLE WITH ANGELA SCHARFENBERGER
This class will meet in person in Louisville at Tim Faulkner Gallery at the corner of Logan and Kentucky Streets. *Vaccination Required; masks will be worn when class meets inside due to weather.
African Music Ensemble is a mixed-level class. We will work on the advanced drum pieces from African drum classes, and building a cohesive group sound, including faster tempos. We will be working towards performance-level skills and tempos. There will be parts for everyone because each piece has simple and complex parts. We will also learn songs that accompany the drum pieces. Advanced students will be coached in more soloing.
Singers are encouraged, you will learn how to lead songs in these traditions.
No prerequisite; but if you're new to African drumming and singing, you will be playing mostly support parts (like bell, shaker, and stick drums).
