African Djembe & Percussion 8-week course with Thomas Christen
This course is open to complete beginners and those with previous experience. All are welcome from age 14 upwards.
You will learn how to play a range of West-African percussion instruments: djembe, dunun, balafon, krin and some others. We will study technique, sound and rhythm fundamentals; learn patterns, accompaniments and solo phrases; as well as practise contemporary ensemble arrangements of rhythm and song from African and Diaspora traditions.
The aim of this course is to empower participants to enjoy African music through the study and play of their instrument of choice, and to grow in time together as the percussion group Afrow Drummers.
If you have your own drum, please bring to class. If you need a djembe, please let us know in advance. All other instruments are provided. - Prior booking is required. Some reduced places available on request. - Be Rhythm, Be Happy!
