Zills are a percussion instrument and lovely to play. Have you ever wondered how to play finger cymbals sājāt (صاجات) and move at the same time? Sign up and learn how!
We will teach you how to hold your zills, play them in a basic pattern/rhythm and how to produce different sounds with them. Then we will show you how to move your feet, arms and hips at the same time. Fun lessons to give you the basic principles of playing zills whilst moving.
The course is suitable for “Absolute Beginners” those who have never held a set of zills before or for those dancers who would like to “refresh” themselves with the very basics of playing.
You do not need to know how to belly dance to learn how to play zills. We’re going to concentrate on playing zills to different rhythms and moving (feet, arms, legs, hips, torso and not necessarily in that order and not necessarily on belly dance moves. Simple combinations taught so you feel comfortable while dancing and moving.
This course is for absolute beginners through to more advanced dancers.
