Service Description

Loudoun Drumming presents a two day skill building series. Djembe Jammin’ for Intermediate Players is a two day hands on drum workshop for drummers who have been playing for anywhere from several months to perhaps a few years and who feel like they’re beyond the basics and are eager to take their hobby deeper, but need some tools to do that. This course will not be about teaching patterns as if they’re “songs”. It will be about understanding some fundamental structures within music and learning to recognize them, understanding and messing with time, technique and skill building, and lots of application by way of group jams in a small group environment. It’s often the smaller jams that are the best, by the way! You’ll need your own instrument, class is over two weekends in August. Class fee of $40 fee includes both weekends. The workshop will focus on djembe, but applies to nearly any hand drum that you have. Shakers and other such instruments are welcome! In fact, we’ll purposely do some shaker work, it’s important! Your instructor, Kenny Finger, has been the facilitator for the classic Loudoun Drumming drum jam events held in and around beautiful Loudoun County. In addition, he has been playing in and around the DMV area for decades in everything from rock bands to informal drum jams. A long-time rock kit drummer, when Kenny began to explore hand percussion several years ago and join local drum circles, he learned many valuable lessons about how to integrate quickly and apply musical ideas within group drumming. This workshop is based on those lessons, boiled down into 4 hours over two sessions and with ample hands-on application and lessons to be taken away and developed as you continue to play. August 3rd, 10:00-12:00 August 17th, 10:00-12:00 Location: Calming Winds Studio, Leesburg VA $40 registration fee is cash payment and will be collected on first class and it covers both sessions.
