Feel the Music and Rhythms of Puerto Rico

During this workshop, you get the opportunity to learn about the history, technique, and rhythms of Afro drumming. Learn basic skills with different drums and instruments and feel the music speak to you. If you have a preference, you can choose Afro-Puerto Rican, Afro-Cuban, or Afro-Brazilian drumming, or decide which style is best for you. We keep the workshop groups small to give you the best quality, attention, and fun you deserve during your Puerto Rico cultural experience.

The workshop is led by talented Beto Torrens at his private music studio. His studio is located in the artistic and local neighborhood of Santurce in San Juan. Feel free to explore the area before or after the workshop. You just might feel inspired!

Since this workshop will require quite a bit of activity, you’ll want to be sure to wear comfortable clothes!
