I have a set of lps coming in the mail, and I'd like to learn how to play em. I haven't seen anyone on this site from michigan, but someone must be out there. I'm buying a teaching book and cd, but nothing replaces a real teacher (or even another player). If you live in the port huron area or near, let me know.

I live in Gaylord and would be happy to get together to show you some basic stuff... There are a couple of incredible congueros in the Ann Arbor area... I can't for the life of me find their contact info right now though... Feel free to message me. I come downstate every month and could easily work something out.

I've been playing congas for about 5 years and also play drum-set, and djembe (seriously)... I am not a shredding rumbero, but I feel comfortable with folks just starting out in terms of teaching technique, tumbao, guaguanco, mozambique, timba, bembe... The basics.

This is coming ten years too late, but there are beginning African drum classes being taught at Detroit Unity Temple in Detroit, Michigan. The teacher as over 33 years playing experience and plays djembe, dunun, conga, and other African percussion instruments. Call 313-345-4848 if interested. Ask for Gerri Hardaway-Stone.
