First, the instructor will give a brief history of the drums including how they are made and the various purposes. Students will then engage in conversations about the cultural importance and relevance of the music created by the drums. Next, the students will learn proper warm ups and techniques required for maintaining physical fitness as needed to play the drum. Students will learn how to make the three basic sounds of the drum, bass (elephant) tone (monkey) and slap (lion). The class will end with students sharing music and history learned in the class.
