3 Month Darbuka Course- Level 1

Fingers of Fury has created a three month Darbuka course designed to bring a beginner darbuka player up to an intermediate level.

The course will guide the student through buying a darbuka drum and playing position, all of the essential tones and techniques, Arabic rhythms, soloing and more! This is the perfect way to learn the darbuka! Be guided by an experienced drummer who has helped thousands of students all over the world reach their musical goals.

How the course works:

The Fingers of Fury Darbuka course has been designed for students to study from two (2) tutorial videos each week and for a period of twelve weeks. Each week you will find two new videos covering all of the essential topics required to become an intermediate level drummer (Total of 26 videos).

The course was launched at the start of December 2009 and each weeks content can be found in the 'Darbuka course' gallery. After the twelve week period all of the videos will be stored here.
