Join training or private lessons for beginners, music enthusiasts and professionals. Private weekly lessons are scheduled and paid for one month at a time. For those who wish to delve deeply into the cultural and technical aspects of African drums as well as rhythms and sounds, a twelve-week Training Program is available.
Students who desire group classes or workshops are welcome to organize and promote such events as can fit in my schedule.
Learn to perform both simple and complex rhythms and patterns, strengthening musical skills and perceptions. Students will learn basic techniques and experience authentic African rhythm languages and develop strong improvisational skills, compositions and build confidence in their respective styles.
