SFCC World Drumming Ensemble is open to beginning, intermediate and advanced students with no prior expectation of drumming skills or music reading skills (although some background in both areas is helpful). This ensemble exposes participants to the music cultures outside of the North-American continent, including African, Brazilian, Cuban, Caribbean, and Afro-Cuban through drumming, singing and/or dancing heritages. Professional dancers often collaborate with this ensemble to augment the authentic experience of traditional and contemporary world musics. The college provides instruments for student use and a limited number of instruments may be checked out by enrolled students for practice at home.  Please enroll in MUSC 134 (currently under Jazz Combo heading) with Zyskowski as Instructor.  Call the SFCC Music Department at 509.533.3720 or e-mail Professor Zyskowski at MartyZ@spokanefalls.edu
