Cosa farete

A one of a kind Jamaican experience. You will learn to play authentic traditional Jamaican and Afro-Caribbean drumming patterns and folk songs and chants. Conga, Djembe, Rastafari, Kumina drums provided.
The drum circle workshop is every Sunday evening 4:00pm-5:30pm. Class begins with warm up on the drums, then stretching, we then move into a series of exercises for tonal clarity and dexterity in this section beginners will understand technique and basic tones of the drum. We then move into whatever rhythm/folk form that is chosen for the day by me, learn all parts and variations. We cool down the class with Rastafari drumming and chanting or sometimes Kumina depending on the vibe.
Other things to note
The class is perfect for beginners intermediate and advanced drummers. Drums are provided for visitors that don't own a drum. However you are encouraged to bring a drum if you can.

Jesse’s drumming class exceeded all my expectations! He is very knowledgeable and patient. It was myself and a bunch of his regular students, all Jamaican. They were warn and welcoming and encouraging. After class, Jesse showed me around the theater and we had a nice chat. I learned so much and left class with an ignited knowledge for drums. Can not recommend this experience enough!!!

I am SO glad I did this! The other students were very kind in helping me learn mew techniques, and one happened to live right by my Air BnB, and the teacher contacted her when I was stuck for a ride there!

I have experience with different styles of drumming and my girlfriend is a beginner- we both really enjoyed this class! Jesse is very talented and was really fun to see his skills. He was also a very attentive teacher and gave each student attention and tailored the session to the different skill levels. The call and response singing/drumming at the end of the lesson felt like a very rare and special moment shared by everyone there that day.

What a wonderful immersion into the beats of the drums, and the feelings or stories you can tell with it. I am no drummer but I love music and would definitely return!
