Group of drummers in Arthur Hull's studio

We are thrilled to announce a brand new offering for six (6) individuals to dive into the depths of rhythm, culture, and technique with Arthur Hull.

For four days and four nights, you and five others will come to Santa Cruz, California and enjoy the opportunity to drop in with Arthur at his personal home-studio, as well as right along the beach overlooking the waves.

All of the participants get to help shape the curriculum. This is NOT a facilitator training. This IS a way to understand how all drumming and rhythm is connected, as well as how to improve your own playing styles. Uncover the difference between clave patterns, see how rhythms traveled from Africa to the Caribbean, learn the true difference between slaps and tones, and see how the five universal rhythms dance together throughout time and space. Discover the univeral principals of hand drumming that permeate through all rhythmacultures.
