The Muse

An opportunity to learn West African Drumming working towards a performance of traditional music from Ghana. Open to people of all ages and abilities.

- 26th May; 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd June; 7pm-8pm (class with Maganui)
- 30th June; 7pm-9pm (workshop with Robert)

Performance (optional, part of a bigger event) Big Muse Winter Concert Sunday 3rd July, 2:00pm-4:30pm, Cathedral College Hall, 62 Ferry Road, Christchurch (see http://www.themuse.org.nz/comingup/)

Join Maganui Stewart and Robert Fugah to experience the exhilaration of playing West African hand drums with others. Improve your coordination, and enjoy the buzz, shared joy and connection that only drumming with others can create. In this class series, participants will learn the rhythms to participate in a traditional Ghanaian concert. Maganui will help students learn the rhythms and develop their skill. Robert Fugah will be in town for the last rehearsal. Participants are invited (but not obliged) to perform in a big community concert on Sunday 3rd July alongside The Muse choirs.

"As an effective communication tool, drumming helps people realise their own contribution to the group. It highlights that everyone's input, no matter how small, can make a marked difference to the success of a group. By playing rhythms together as an ensemble, groups develop a powerful synergy and sense of unity. Our workshops break down age, social and gender barriers. It's a fun and accessible activity that everyone is drawn to and anyone can do." - Robert Fugah
