This course is useful to any type of drummer, not only darbuka players.
Are you terrified of soloing? When it’s your turn to solo do you feel like a deer in the headlights, hands shaking and suddenly all the great ideas you had before suddenly gone? Do your hands get sweaty, your body tense and you lose your control? Do you find yourself returning again and again to the same old pattern? Do you have trouble figuring out how to end? This course is for you!
You will learn how to make interesting phrases on the fly, how to use contrast, dynamics, space, dialogue, time modulations, and how to actually practice soloing alone and with friends. You will also learn how to make a successful and fun improvised belly dance drum solo.
