In this course for non-percussion principals students focus on the development of basic techniques and sound production using the North African tar frame drum. The mathematical rhythm system from South India is explored to create phrases in 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 with an emphasis on independence, ankle bells, and spoken drum vocables. Rhythms and concepts will also be rendered using harmonic time.
