Drumming Lessons

Drumming lessons can be booked one-to-one, or as part of a small or large group.  Each participant gets their own drum to play on. Your instructor Ray will make sure that everybody is having fun!

Lessons begin with Ray giving a brief background to Garifuna culture. You’ll then learn how to hold and strike your large bass “Segunda” drum.  He will show you a basic rhythm, then he will play alongside you on the smaller Primero drum.  He will also sing a traditional Garifuna song while you play.  You will learn many rhythms, including Paranda, Punta, Chumba and more.

Price per person:

1-6 people: $15USD/$30Bz per person

7+ people: $12.50USD/$25Bz per person
