SPMA Welcomes Alex Jenkins to Summer 17′

HAND DRUM CLASS ADDED TO SUMMER SCHEDULE!!!

Screen Shot 2017-03-26 at 9.23.58 AMPercussionist: Alex Jenkins will teach a hand drum class during the 3rd week of SPMA Summer 17′   This One Week Class will meet Monday through Friday: July 24th through July 28th at 10:30am, for 90 minutes each day.  The Class will conclude with a short performance at Clara, in the Courtyard on Friday at the end of the week between 12 and 12:30pm

(Will have approximately 10 Djembe Drums available for students…please bring your own hand drum if you have one.)

Jenkin’s in-depth study of world music culture gives Alex a sound that transcends musical traditions and boundaries. His expression of rhythm is heavily influenced by his study of Indian Classical Tabla, & as a result,  Jenkins has become well known for his creative approach to music, drums and his unique ability to fuse rhythmic ideas from various disciplines, into one cohesive sound.
