Pandeireta (Galician percussion)
Pandeireta (beginners or semi-advanced)
Those who have already seen Galician singing groups are often impressed by the dynamic way in which the Galician tambourine (pandeireta) is played. The Galician technique distinguishes itself from other countries where the tambourine is an important instrument (such as Italy, Brazil, or other Spanish regions).
However, if you have mastered the technique and basic rhythms, you can go in many directions: you can accompany the gaita or Galician singing, but you can also play along perfectly with your pandeireta with an Italian tarantella or an Irish jig.
During a first series of lessons you will learn the basic technique and the most important rhythms of Galician music (muiñeira, jota, pasodoble and rumba) on pandereta and conchas (scallops). In the next series, these rhythms will be further perfected, working on speed and variation.
