Youth: $5 · Adults: $20 (per class)


For our second summer in the SFJAZZ Center, we are thrilled to bring together master percussionists from around the globe and celebrate the power of the drum. Expert faculty include Indian tabla master Zakir Hussain and native instructors from Perú, Haiti, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Japan and the U.S! Suitable for varying levels, these hands-on workshops will get families playing together and share the wealth of diverse world rhythms.

Students are encouraged to bring their own drums to class; some instruments will be provided.
