For those with no/little drumming experience, but the desire/passion to give the drums a try, this class introduces students to the West African djembe drum. This drum is very popular with drum students outside of Africa due to the range of tones it is able to produce. The true African djembe drums are hand-carved from a solid piece of wood, hollowed out inside and covered on top with a goat hide.
Winter/Spring Session Begins Saturday February 23/19 12-week session
