Drumming for Ritual (September '22 Drop In) 

The Art, Science and Mysteries of the Drum

Deepen your relationship with the drum and the ecstatic experience of drumming in ritual through exploration of the art, science and mysteries of the drum.

Each of these four classes will be focused on building the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to elevate your drumming and deepen your ritual experience as a rhythmatist. Over the course of these classes we’ll discuss various occult aspects and esoteric lore of the Drum, work together on learning a new polyrhythm for each class, and learn how to release ourselves through improvisation in the context of both rituals and drum circles. 

Some of the other topics we'll discuss and play with are the magick of polyrhythms, energetic profiles of various drums, holding space while actively drumming, personal energy management for drumming, and playing with other instruments.

We'll connect to and find inspiration from rhythms throughout all aspects of life, and how to bring that inspiration into ritual. 

No prior experience is required and all levels are welcome. We will be playing the djembe, primarily. One can be provided if you don't already have one of your own. 

There will also be a featured drum in each class such as the frame drum, doumbek, congas, or dununs. We'll talk about its history, typical rhythmic styles and techniques of play, and how it might be integrated into ritual. 

Whereas the material will build from class to class, each will stand on its own and drop-ins are welcome. Previous material will be reviewed briefly at the start of each new class.

Bring a chair for playing if you have one, and don’t forget water and any snacks you may want.

You are the instrument, the drum is your cohort for expression. Find your voice and let it sing through the drum
