De vision of this school "Be Yourself"

Eastern Expressions

Be Yourself is the motto of the School and with that also one of the main goals of our study.

In the end everyone wants his, or hers, own emotions, voice or character, be heard in their playing the instrument, in this case the darbuka.

Everyone is unique. So has everybody ones own unique character, a unique pair of hands, a musical preference and a measure of talent. This makes your own musical personality.

When can make your own personality be heard via your instrument it is not only fun, but it also makes you unique as a musician.

You can play a rhythmic pattern to perfection, there will always be another darbuka player with more speed, power, a better sound or something else.
So in your own studies it is important to find your own way and tempo, and so stay as close as possible to yourself.
You can (and must) learn and copy from other players to implement in your style.

In the beginning that may seem a bit complex, but little by little you will grasp those techniques, and your play will improve, but it will your play.

That's what it's all about.
