Singing

1. Try your voice out and get some opinions as to whether you can sing on key and have an ear for music.
2. Learn your tribal songs.Practice singing them, while drumming, to develop the coordination between the drumbeat and rhythm of the song.
3. Start the song 'on beat' as well as second the song 'on beat'. It's often said that these dances couldn't go on without the drum and singers. But what good is a drum and singers without dancers/participants? They are the reason for us being there. The two go hand in hand. The drum and singing should complement and even enhance their dancing!
4. Establish and maintain decorum when at the drum. It brings respect to the arena and you.
