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.
Lessons start at $25Bz for a one-to-one lesson. Discounts are available for larger groups.
