Continues work on the concepts of levels of rhythms and the ways to view them. The effect of these lessons is meant to give the student a greater sense of the mystical power of something simply done in a clear profound fashion. The class will explore how the split finger drum technique can be applied to other drums and percussion instruments, and watch and hear audio examples of a variety of indigenous musicians  from around the world and discuss the aspects that transcend style on a global music basis. Applying the concepts shared in class, students will start to create some pieces using the frame drum and a family of other percussion instruments that the instructor will provide. Class assignments will include original short basic compositions or adaptations of known songs that show a level of mastery of the concepts presented in class.
