Practical Conga Course: 250 Rhythms (Full Version)
What you'll learn
- Play Conga
- The basic sounds of the instrument

- Have a Conga
In this "Practical Conga Course", first of all, we will see the basic sounds of the Conga, to be able to learn, then, a considerable number of rhythms.
We will specifically learn 250 rhythms.
Some of the rhythms are in 4/4 time signature (which is a way of counting time used in styles of music such as rock, pop, funk, Latin, hip-hop ...).
Other rhythms are in 3/4 time signature (another way of counting time used in styles such as blues, jazz, swing, folk ...)
In this way, we will have a repertoire of rhythms wide enough to play over our favorite songs and even improvise by combining some rhythms with others.
In short, it is a practical method to approach the learning of this fabulous percussion instrument and introduce us to the world of rhythm and time.
MUSIC & PERCUSSION
Percussion is an extraordinary tool to connect with oneself and others.
We all know the beneficial power of music, both physically and mentally.
There are numerous studies that link playing an instrument with good brain activity.
In addition, the music goes directly to our emotions and each song transports us to a state of mind as if by magic.
Besides, the relational power of music has also been demonstrated when it comes to generating bonds with others.
All the positive qualities of music are amplified when you generate the music yourself.
Percussion is an ideal way to get into the music or to solidify your tempo and rhythm if you already play an instrument.
Percussion gives us that essence of origins that allows us to forget for a moment our problems and connect with our depths.
