It was ok

My overall experience was fine. Though the place for the workshop was not a real space. It was in someone home. Which is fine but when i arrived 10 mins prior to the start of the workshop no one was home to open the door. A neighbor had to help me get in touch with the instructor bc the number the agency told me to call to get in touch with them was going to voicemail. I missed 25 minutes of the 2 hour workshop that i paid $45 for NOT bc i was late but bc no one was picking up and there were no clear signs at the location. The actual workshop was fine and goes at a good pace for beginners who want to learn more. Pablo is a very nice person that makes you feel comfortable and is encouraging.

Pablo was a great host for this experience. He thoroughly explained the history behind bomba music and the instruments. He made it fun and showed us how to play the drums to the tempo.

I am Puerto Rican and this class made me feel more in touch with my culture. I had a lot of fun getting into the groove of the music. The teacher's passion for Bomba is very infectious and he truly knows how to teach it well!

Bomba and Salsa are the number 2 dances and music of the island, happy to hear you enjoyed the cultural experience we were able to give you.

What a night!

This class really educated all twelve of us (college students and 2 professors) about the origins of the music of Puerto Rico. The teacher was incredible and got all of us involved in working with instruments we'd never used before and with the rhythms of the island. We began very simply and worked our way through two hours of wonderful instruction until we had used all of the instruments and were actually producing music! I highly recommend this!
