Marimba Classes

Beginning Bands for Kids and Adults

Study African marimba music as the member of a band!

These are beginning marimba classes for children and adults spanning eight weeks, culminating in a performance during the last session. We will be studying Zimbabwean roots music as well as pieces from Congo and South Africa. The marimba is an excellent instrument for learning complex rhythms, creating a rich group sound and also learning the basics of improvisation. Students will learn to create and combine basic rhythms as well as understand the basics of group arrangement. All levels are encouraged and welcome to join…no experience necessary!
