Beginner's Class - For those who have never really played a drum before, or it's been a long time. We will focus on how to play proper tones, and how to understand rhythm in the body and the mind.
Level 1 - For those who have been playing for about a year or more, and who understand how to play the proper tones on their drums (bass, edge, muted), and understand concepts about rhythm.
Level 2 - For those who have been playing at least three years, can maintain a rhythm while others play a counter rhythm, and are comfortable playing in odd time rhythms.
Become actively engaged in a life of rhythm at whatever level you seek: physical, healthful, soulful. River's classes inspire beginners to explore new possibilities, advanced students to aspire to deepening their skills and all participants to resonate in the supportive community that grows from making music together.
