Hey fitz! Welcome to the forums! :)
Have you tried searching for darbuka lessons on YouTube? There are many videos you can watch and learn the basic techniques!

Oh, what a beauty! You got yourself quite a good instrument, fitz!

If you're a beginner, you could easily find lessons on yourtube. However, if you're looking for something more advanced (which you might anyway, sooner or later), have a look here: http://www.arabinstruments.com/gold-package-darbuka-doumbek-lessons, they offer a pretty good deal.

Thank you guys for the answers. I tried to look on youtube for some tutorials but they are for doumbek and it seems it's a bit different from the darabuka. I learned some basics from youtube + on my own and I will consider buying the Gold Package and the Darbuka Dance light device :D (it looks really interesting).

Most people already have answer what I would have suggest, as itís obvious that YouTube is the best station to learn since there are some really wonderful tutorials not just for Doumbek but even for Darbuka, I will try to search it for you, but there are many available.

Hi,
here is some sample, how to play your darbuka:

So doum, tek and slap it's same as the doumbek-style.
The ka is played with snaps. Here is a good instruction to learn this technique:
