The current six-week class series at Shallowford Presbyterian finishes on May 18th, and classes will resume in early August, after a summer break for traveling.
Drumming Immersion Workshop at Shallowford Presbyterian, Saturday June 17th!
I will offer a West African Drumming immersion workshop, Saturday, June 17th. Please save the date! With a minimum of 7 people it will be a go. 9:30am to about 3pm with a nice lunch break in the middle, at a nearby restaurant we can all agree on. The fee will be $55. We will cover all the accompaniment rhythms, dunun music, and bridge for one piece, beginning to end. You can really improve your sounds, dunun skills, musicality etc. with a workshop like this. Spread the word!
The Emerson Drummers are now playing in their 27th year together!
Your first class is FREE, so you can decide if it's a good fit. 7-8:30pm every Tuesday night, $20 per class drop-in for new members after your first class. For those ready to join the performing group, the Sustaining Member status gives you a discount price of $65 per month with a commitment to attend and pay every month.
In the warm months we meet at East Cobb Park on Roswell Road, in the pavilion closest to the road and just behind the kids' playground. If that pavilion is already taken we move to the smaller pavilion with the piano in the middle, at the back of the upper parking lot. During the cold months, including November-February, we meet in the Fellowship Hall at Emerson Unitarian Congregation, 4010 Canton Road, Marietta GA 30066. Loaner drums and sale drums available by request made prior to class.
