Чем вы займетесь

Your class will be in a small group (maximum 4 people) in our beautiful Victorian home or garden in central Edinburgh. Lessons begin with a brief background to the unique and fascinating UNESCO-recognised Garifuna culture, which has a history intertwined with Africa, the UK, France, the Caribbean, Central America and beyond.

We have two drum and two pairs of maracas for our guests. You’ll then learn how to hold and strike your large bass “Segunda” drum or shake your "shakas". I will show you a basic rhythm, then I will play alongside you on the smaller Primero drum. I will also sing a traditional Garifuna song while you play. You will learn many traditional Garifuna rhythms, including Paranda, Punta, Chumba and more.

Garifuna drums and rhythms are dynamic, exciting and quite different to the African djembe rhythms you have heard before, thanks to the fusion of African and indigenous Amerindian history of the Garifuna. Lessons are adapted to your skills and experience - from total beginners, to professional percussionists. I don't use formal music or drum teaching methods, but instead use fun, hands-on methods that anybody can learn from.

I am an experienced and well-known teacher of my traditional drumming, with over 30 years drumming with my family group, and over ten years experience teaching others. I am a former drummer, dancer and singer with the Belize National Dance Company, I have performed around the world, and love sharing my culture with others. My big smile, patience, friendliness, and skills in teaching others make me a popular guide.

Ronald was extremely welcoming and friendly and made the experience feel comfortable but safe. He is clearly an expert at drumming but he made it seem really easy and accessible even though we'd never touched any kind of drum before. The drumming itself was great fun and it was fascinating to see him join in with his super fast hands! The stories he shared of his family and drum school in Belize made us want to go visit there one day once covid has passed.

What a great experience! Ronald was welcoming and really brought the drumming to life by firstly being patient with us while we were learning to allow us to progress at a decent rate and then by adding his own drumming and vocals over the top once we had the basic rhythms. During the breaks to rest our hands, he regaled us with tales of his family and the culture/traditions surrounding Garifuna in a hugely entertaining way. The session over-ran as we were all having so much fun (and we were the last group of the day). We left - eventually - feeling very satisfied with our new-found drumming skills!
