Q: What resources does Artdrum recommend for learning to play the congas?
Recommended Conga Book:
Its easy to follow format will teach you correct technique, a lifetime's worth of beginner & advanced rhythms for single or double congas.
It is a great rhythm reference book for advanced players and excellent instructional book for beginners.
Listen to the Music
For others, we recommend
Books, DVDs & videos can be great teachers, but a professional, live teacher will typically help you grow in the fastest manner. There are other benefits from a live teacher, including live playing, live listening & live feedback. In the Central NJ, USA Artdrum offers conga & Afro-Cuban drum lessons.
If you would like to learn drumming in Brazil or Cuba, Artdrum recommends Chuck Silverman, international teacher and player.
