Galician percussion: pandeireta

Pandeireta (beginners)

If you have ever had the chance to see a group of Galician chants, like Ialma or Leilía, you may have been impressed by the dynamic way the Galician tambourine (pandereita) is played.

The Galician technique of playing is is distinct from other countries where the tambourine is an important instrument, (like Italy, Brazil, or other Spanish regions). Though the technique may appear to be easy, it requires quite a bit of practice… Once you will achieve a certain mastery of the instrument, many opportunities will open up: You can accompany gaita or Galician chants, but you can perfectly join an Italian Tarantella or an Irish Jig.

You will learn the most important rhythms of Galician music (muiñeira, jota, pasodoble, rumba). In a second cycle, we will work on speed and variation and you will learn some arrangements. During this cycle we will start playing together with the students of gaita.

If you are already playing pandeireta, you can follow the Galician percussion course for intermediate students and/or the pandeireta and Galician singing workshops with Xavier Sanchez

Galician percussion (semi-advanced): tambor and pandeireta

Do you have already a basic level of tambor or pandeireta and would you like to improve this by playing together?
In this course we learn a weekly arrangement with a Galician number that we then practice together with the gaitas towards the end of the lesson. The lesson is therefore open to those who play pandeireta or tambor, or both.

Do you want to practice extra pandeireta, or learn to guide yourself on vocals: then definitely follow the singing and pandeireta workshops with Xavier Sanchez.
