Drum Dreaming is a soothing rhythmical and uplifting original composition and is sure to please players and audiences alike. The instruments I played on Drum Dreaming are world percussion instruments and not culturally specific. These rhythms can easily be adapted to suit classrooms and school percussion.
Who's it for?
This suits all kinds of students, teachers and community leaders from classroom to community and presents a wonderful learning tool for beginners right through to advanced players.
You don't need to be a musician to understand the rhythms in the workbook. All djembe, low pitch drums and hand held percussion parts are written in easy to read box form notation.
