Connecting through rhythm is an experience grounded in time and centuries of cultural exchange. 


The entire nervous system has a way of resetting when we connect to ourselves and to others through basic skills in rhythmic movement and sound.


Are you interested? 


I have a passion for teaching people basic rhythmic skills through African-style drumming, geared toward ensemble playing, with fundamentals rooted in the teachings and foundations of Babatunde Olatunji. 


What will you gain?


  • Skills such as eye-hand coordination, listening, general organization within body, mind & spirit

  • Capacities of perseverance & resiliency while learning rhythmic patterns on the drum

  • Cultivation of joyful connection with self and others through pure rhythm


How will I teach you?


  • Introduce you to the language of the drum using Baba’s gun go-do pa-ta method

  • Teach both basic and more complex rhythmic patterns on the drum

  • Bring in other percussion instruments along the way

  • Orchestrate multiple part pieces as I guide you in ensemble playing

  • And….eventually perform what we have learned for family & friends!
