About the event
Learn to play a traditional West African rhythm on the djembe (a goblet-shaped hand drum). This introductory workshop is aimed at complete beginners. It will teach you how to play the three basic sounds, develop a sense of rhythm, and play an authentic West African rhythm in a group setting. This class is suitable for complete beginners ages 12 and up (including adults!)
No musical background is necessary. Students using loaner drums must remove rings from their fingers before playing.
