Velez/Sheronick Intensives

What: Glen Velez and Yousif Sheronick host regular one-day VIRTUAL Frame Drum Intensives via Zoom.   There is limited availability as this is an interactive Intensive where students can ask questions.  We will also break into smaller groups for more individual instruction.    



When is the next Intensive: Sunday December 6, 2020

Class Times: 10am to 12:15pm and 1:15pm to 3:30pm EST (New York Time).  All students attend both morning and afternoon sessions.    


Cost: $120


There will be sessions on Tar, Bodhran and Riq. Students will learn the "Glen Velez Style" of playing.


The intensive will focus on 4 areas:

1) playing technique

2) rhythmic organization

3) tools for self creativity

4) experiencing the joy of group frame drumming
