Starts on the 10th July 2013

Please Note: Whilst the JDC if free and open to everyone, this year will reference much of the content inside the 'FoF' site. It is therefor highly advisable to become a Bronze/Silver or Gold level member.

What is the Challenge?

One hour of practice for 21 days during July (Open for Beg'- Adv' drummers)

This can be done morning or night and as a one hour session, two half hour sessions or four fifteen minute sessions each day. The challenge is one hours practice for 21 days.
Have you got what it takes to do this?!

Here is your chance to practice with a set schedule and a community from all over the world supporting you and practicing together. It doesn't get any better than this so prepare yourself for an exciting 3 weeks of drumming.

Are you wanting to play for dancers? In a band? In a recording studio? A drum group? This is the time to make it happen then!

How does it work?


Each day you will check in to the 'July Darbuka Challenge' home page and listen to the 'daily audio practice schedule' (Also available on our Facebook page). This will give you your daily practice schedule to follow or if you already know what you want to practice it will give you some more ideas to add to your sessions as well as many new ideas to consider. The exercises are also written for you to follow.

Please note: I will be making many references to the members section of the site. There are now many options for anyone wishing to join so please find a membership that suits you and go for it. This will also allow you to take part in the forum discussions and help topics. Beginner drummers can now join the site for $29 and access a mountain of information, it is very affordable!

So, clear some time in July, start telling yourself you are about to practice for an hour 21 days straight and GET EXCITED! July is going to be the month that your Darbuka/Dahola playing takes off!!
