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 Session – Begins Feb. 11, 5 classes.  Contact Jay for more details.

For those whose have taken at least one full session of hand drum study and have a solid understanding and technical ability with the bass, open and slap strokes. This level will lead students through a further development of ability to improvise on the drums, add more rhythms to the students repertoire and add one or more multi-part drum pieces from Ghana.
