What can you expect from African Drum classes with Ray?…
– High quality, personalised teaching - Great technique on a range of percussion instruments - How to hear, play and feel rhythms - A range of West African and Afro Cuban rhythms and accompanying parts - Experience of how rhythms relate to dance and songs - Many opportunities to learn, perform and extend yourself at your own pace - Ray’s technical expertise and 30 yrs of experience in different genres of music - Very reasonable prices (classes are $25/$20con)
Benefits for students- Drumming with Ray is a lot of fun and non competitive, but with this comes the challenge to improve and learn more about the rhythms, songs and culture of the music being played and the goal of stepping up to an intermediate class as you improve and gain more experience.
A drum can be provided for use in beginner lessons at no extra charge if you need one. Please contact your teacher in advance if this is the case.
Students are welcome to make audio visual recordings of the classes to aid their study. Written material is also delivered as part of the course.
Cost of all 4 week courses is $100/$80concession. Payment for each 4 week course is made in advance. Eg: If you want to enroll for the course, payment is made at the first class. The same system is then repeated if you continue with subsequent courses.If you are sick then you can make up a class that you miss.If you know you are away for a lesson before the course starts and let Ray know before the first class then you don’t need to pay for that lesson.Otherwise the whole courses is paid for at the first class.
Fees for professional organisations, schools and community groups can be discussed directly with Ray.
