We have a real treat for my Tuesday night class coming up with Miro Klima taking over on the 14th May.
Miro has been studying West African drumming for the past 18 years. During this time he has learnt from some of the best African masters alive today, both in Guinea (West Africa) and also in Europe and Australia, where many of these teachers now live. As a performer, Miro has played in a number of west African inspired troupes and performed at numerous functions and events all around the world. He has been teaching and facilitating drumming workshops, weekly classes and team-building events for the past 10+ years in Europe and New Zealand.
We are really excited to have him here, as his reputation for being an amazing drum tutor precedes him.
Usual fees apply: Beginner class, 6-7pm - $10, Intermediate, 7-8.30pm $20 (includes beginners class for free). Pre purchased 10 trip tickets can be used for this awesome workshop.
