We provide two levels of djembe class each week. Beginner class will introduce co-ordination and foundation patterns using the bass, tone and slap sounds. Fun warm-ups lead into the traditonal accompaniments of the African tribal rhythms. You will learn the musical language of the djembe which culminates in an arranged piece including breaks and traditional songs.

Intermediate class requires some drumming experience. It will introduce more complex djembe accompaniments and other elements of traditional African rhythms including dundun and bell parts.

All level classes have the opportunity to perform together at the end of each term. It’s fun, non-competitive, challenging and you will discover and develop your own sense of rhythm while exploring the parameters of ensemble playing. Invigorate your rhythmic self!
