Drum Rockies Drum Camps for Women

http://drumrockies.com The Djembe, a goblet shaed drum made of hard wood, was introduced to American during the famed tour of the National Ballet of Guineas in the late 50’s. Since that time Traditional West African music, specifically djembe music has been the fastest growing musical genre in the world leading to such genres as World Music, World beat and such.
  Djembe drumming has become very popular in America and women are the largest and fastest growing group of djembe drummers. While some women have broken the barriers around women playing djembe there is still need for opportunities for women to learn traditional West African music and technique. Drum Rockies Drum Camps for Women is developed for women who want to play djembe to learn this music in a supportive environment. In addition Drum Rockies supports women who just want to “play the drum” by teaching djembe hand technique, principles of rhythm, and how to apply these to their own creations.
  Drum Rockies is for women at all levels of skill playing the djembe; from the baby beginner to those that have skill in drumming or dancing to learn more about solo techniques and why everything; the djembe, the bass drums, small percussion, fits together to make African Dance the powerful and healing activity that it is.
  Drum Rockies wants to raise $1300 to cover facility rental expenses at Sun Rise Ranch in Loveland, Colorado for 4 days, expenses for the professional staff necessary to make the camp a diverse and credible experience ($2550). The remaining $350 is to cover the expenses for this funding campaign.
  I am contributing to the success of Drum Rockies camp as well. I usually charge $100 per person per workshop for my teaching a three class |one day intensive on West African Drumming. For this camp experience I will only be charging $150 total per person for the 4 day experience; a savings of over $150 per participant. Your contribution will help us create a successful campaign that will allow us to keep this camp affordable camp for our participants. It will also help us to build our ability to be become sustainable in offering Drum Rockies camps in the future. I and my staff of professional artists will appreciate any offerings to support Drum Rockies Camp for Women Drummers.
