Introduction: Tareq Rantisi - world Percussionist. Born 1984, in Jerusalem. Tareq started his career playing Middle Eastern percussion at age 12 and as a young self-taught musician had already shared the stage with some of the most distinguished musicians in the region. In 2008, Tareq received the Al-Qattan Foundation Music Scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, receiving a degree in Percussion Performance. Tareq’s studies brought him into a deep dialogue with many styles of music including jazz, Afro-Cuban, Carnatic Indian, and Brazilian. Since Berklee, Tareq has developed a wide body of educational work, offering master classes, workshops and private lessons throughout the world in collaboration with Arabic Music Retreat, Brandeis University, The Center for Arabic Culture, NAFDA,
Tareq lives between New York and Boston City and performs throughout the world.
Music is a universal language through which we can connect across culture and experience, and every student comes with her or his own musical knowledge, interest and background. I love teaching students of all levels and enjoy the process of figuring out the right method and teaching technique for all my students.
My classes will help your creativity, coordination, focus, self-confidence, emotional growth, discipline, relaxation and of course better drumming.
