We provide two levels of djembe class each week, taught by Simon Lewis. Beginner class will introduce co-ordination and foundation patterns using the bass, tone and slap sounds. Fun warm-ups lead into the traditional 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. Expect more complex djembe accompaniments and other elements of traditional African rhythms including dundun and bell parts.
Classes are 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!
