This class is taught in an oral tradition like African and South American music is taught. The students don't necessarily have to read music to play this. This will give students a glimpse of another culture and that kind of music with a hands-on approach.
Right now we are basically learning African and Afro-Cuban rhythms. We are not really playing songs yet. We are playing rhythm, patterns and complements. Right now, we are just getting our hands on the drums to get used to the idea.
