It’s DUN time with Laura Kirkwood’s Dun Workshop Series


Laura is presenting a three class series focusing on the traditional Hamanah style of playing. ie With the 3 different sized duns on their side and using one hand with a bell.
The sessions are designed for people with some dun experience: Intermediate / more advanced players looking to improve control, dexterity and rhythmic knowledge.
The classes will prepare students for a performance opportunity at Tribalism on Friday 5th April
