Kristen Arant is one of the most dynamic and capable women I have met. She has a vast knowledge of West African rhythms and traditions and has a diverse style in which she is able to teach her wisdom. She understands the drum and how it is integrated into mind, body and spirit and directs you into taking that journey with drum deeper. From the beginner to intermediate and beyond she meets you where you are at and intuitively pushes for more, but in the most energetic, lively, fun and creative way.”
-Rachel Summerlot, drummer and student
