learning to play the drums/trommeln lernen
Posted November 3rd, 2010 - 7:54 pm by from Berlin, Germany (Permalink)
I'd love to learn to play any kind of drums - preferably Zabumba for Maracatu or samba, but basically anything could be nice, cajon, djembe, or darbuka... I'm open and I don't have a clue :) (And I probably got all the names and techniques and whatever mixed up here, I excuse to all those that know better and mind)

I've googled drum schools in Berlin, but I though that maybe someone here has made experiences with a school or teacher, is a teacher him/herself, or has any other valuable hint for me...

I have a friend who is also interested, and maybe there are other people who'd like to learn something in that direction as well? So that we could form a group to learn it together? (if we find instruments)

I could offer self made cakes, German lessons, or a bottle of wine in exchange, but I would also willing to pay a little...
