Learn how to drum on trash cans from the MIT Live Music Connection! We are so excited for the 4th rendition of TCD, where you will fast become a stick twirling, long-haired, face-melting, solo-crushing, jam-exploding, drumming phenomenon. Well, most likely. What we can guarantee is that, if you have a basic musical background (and even if you don't) you will get a solid primer on drumming technique, rhythm, jamming, and even collaborative writing - all on authentic steel 31 gallon trash cans. Genres will include inspirations from: jazz, rock, funk, hip hop, r&b, and music of the Senegalese persuasion. Have no fear, we've done this before!

Join us - we've got some awesome instructors that have signed on as well to help make you groove like you're ulna is on fire!

There will be a wait-list when more than 10 people sign up.
