Korean traditional instrument lessons for foreigners


Interested in learning some new skills and experiencing culture rather than just looking at it? From July 6th (Wed) and every Wednesday until September 23rd there is going to be lessons for Samulnori (Korean traditional instrument) at the Daegu Cultural arts center. You will be able to have a classes that teaches you the basics until you can totally understand and use the instruments.
The class sizes are small there will be about 10 people and it is well organized. There are two different classes one for advanced and one for beginners so once you start getting the hang of it and you have a talent for this type of instruments you can move up to the advanced class and learn in more detail.
Samulnori has gained Global popularity as it delivers superb Korean music throughout the world. Samulnori expresses rhythm of percussion but more importantly it is based on excitement and relaxation and harmony of the music. Samulnori music, when the beat is slow, it becomes extremely slow and when it gets to the end it becomes really fast. This is because of the excitement and relaxation style of music.

Take a real class on the culture of Korea to take home, skill like these, you never know when they can come in handy. Korea is becoming very global and skills like these could come a long way someday. I hope you decide to go J
If you go to Jungangro station, Exit 4 is the closest exit and you will be able to find it.

  1. Awesome idea, I just wish they had a time in the morning or on weekends so that foreigners who teach at hagwons in the evenings could go!
