HandDrumming Workshop with George Wakim
Hello all our Drum/Doumbek/Tabla/Derbeki Enthusiasts!!! We are so happy to announce the talented George Wakim will be teaching a drum workshop with us again at Arabesque. If you are a regular visitor at our space its very likely you’ve seen him in action, playing Oud, Violin, or Tabla, and singing at some of our recent events!
This Class is for students who already have some drumming experience, and wish to take their drumming up a notch.
Class will start slow, and we will work on the actual sounds we make, but we will also get to work on 1 or 2 Rhythms, and play to some music.
Class will run 90 minutes (or more)
This hand drumming (tabla) workshop will be fun, engaging and very informative.
George Wakim has developed his own unique teaching style. In his class, Students will learn to use their ears and truly listen, to be able to identify and name the rhythms. In addition, he will engage each student diligently to ensure proper drumming sounds are achieved, and we will work on some basic rhythms.
