An Introduction to Afro-Cuban Drumming

 10-Week Course: 4th June – 6th August

This 10-week course is a preparatory course that introduces the main musical components of Afro-Cuban drumming. Students will learn basic sounds on various drums, be able to play and understand one or two clave patterns with a pulse and play simple polyrhythmic patterns for rumba, batá, makuta etc. in context with some songs. Bombo Productions prides itself on providing a friendly supportive environment where students can enjoy learning music whilst connecting with a community of people passionate about drumming.

Bombo Productions offers a range of courses that cater for three levels of ability. This course is suitable for complete beginners. If you are not sure which level you are at why not visit our Learning Objectives and Student Levels page on our website. There you will find a chart outlining the key musical skills we expect our students to acquire from attending our courses/workshops combined with home study. This chart is also a reference to check which skills are required of participants wanting to attend courses or workshops aimed at levels 2 and 3.
