World Percussion Instruction
It's hard not to fall in love with the joyful sounds of world percussion. Lively and exciting, world percussion is able to get the party started like no other form of music. For proof of that, look no further than the streets of Rio de Janeiro during their legendary Carnival. People love to dance, and world percussion makes it nearly impossible to resist tapping your toes and swinging your hips. But if you want to learn how to master world percussion, it takes practice, which is why we offer plenty of options for world percussion instruction.
So which world percussion instructional book is right for you? Well, that's going to depend on your level of play, as well as the instrument you're learning. Different drums definitely require very different learning techniques, so it's best to have a look around at everything offered in this section before you make your final decision. If, for example, you are interested in learning to play the djembe, you'll love options such as Hal Leonard Beginning Djembe: Essential Tones Rhythms & Grooves DVD, as well as the Alfred Ultimate Beginner Series Have Fun Playing Hand Drums Djembe DVD. On the other hand, if you're more interested in the Cajons, then check out Hal Leonard's Getting Started On Cajon DVD, Mel Bay's First Lessons Cajons book, or Music Sales' Absolute Beginners Cajon Book/CD. Maybe you're a conga fan, or you'd rather play the timbales? Don't worry, there are books here for those drums as well.
A good instructional booklet is like a great teacher that you can call on 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With any of the world percussion instruction material available here, you're going to have everything you need to learn the basics of your instruments, so one day you can bring all your favorite rhythms to life for crowds of thousands.
