African Drumming Classes


Drum class is back on Saturday’s new rhythms to learn 3 pm until 4.30 pm
22 Ingham rd West End (the service rd
( Due to the COVID some restrictions apply in numbers and if you have any cold or flu symptoms please stay home.
The cost of the class is $10.00 and bookings are very essential.


The drumming class I provide is in the spirit of the djembe and the rhythms are rhythms I have learned from master drummers and other teachers who support the African drumming community, and because of my love for the drum and the happiness it has given me over the years. Where possible please learn from the source, there are lots of options these days to learn from masters via zoom and prerecorded lessons. But nothing can replace the pure joy and energy of learning in a group and this is why I have the class, it also prepares us for any master drummers who visit so we can learn quickly from them ūüôā

I thank those who have supported me over the years and all my teachers who have given me so much
