Matthew Hill Workshop – February Sunday 21st 2010
Finally we have all setup for Matthew’s Workshop. A big thanks goes to Joe Teskie, Gene Shapiro, Silva and Mark Richards for making this a reality.
Write down on you calendar, Sunday 21st at 11:30 AM Will have a one of a kind workshop with Matthew Hill who is traveling from New York for the class. If you don’t Matthew’s inspiring musical work, take a look at the video posted on miamidrums two years ago here:
Matthew Hill Delou musical director Video
The workshop would go over some basic and not so basic rhythm of West African music. Bring your drum and your chair. Workshop would be 1:30 Hs long and is hosted on Silva’s studios:
5533 La Gorce Dr. Miami Beach, FL. Workshop cost is $15 and I can guaranteed you it’s all well invested if you’re trying to improve your playing.
Would love to see you there!
New Saturday Djembe class – Happy 4th of July
You might remember Matthew Hill’s video from last year. He just came back from almost a year in Africa and he’s about to start teaching every Saturday for the next six weeks at: 5533 La Gorce Dr. Miami Beach, FL at 11 Am – All levels welcome. Class cost $15.
I’ve taken classes with him at FIU and I can say he’s a great teacher. No only teaches but empowers you to learn and play better.

In addition to the Miami Beach gatherings, Michael from the SFDCC Newsletter reports:
Unity on the Bay – Full Moon Drum Circle FRIDAY, JULY 18th from 7 to 9PM – fee $10
Coordinated by Carlos Manuel Planas and Jude Byrne.
We meet in a church, have a spiritually-flavored drum circle, and therefore have a zero tolerance drug and alcohol scene. We want to create a non-threatening safe space, a family atmosphere. We believe that the music on its own creates a healing, natural high, so artificial ingredients are not needed in this environment. All instruments are welcome. People show up with djembes, doumbeks, congas,
etc. Latin rhythms may predominate, but all rhythms are welcome.
Held at: Unity on the Bay Church, 411 NE 21st St., Miami FL, near Biscayne Bay
