Djembe and West African drumming classes every Tuesday night in Leeds.
African hand drumming is an engaging and fun hobby for anyone - it helps you to develop your sense of rhythm, and your hand and body co-ordination. Over the years our class has helped many hundreds of members from absolute beginner up to performance level. Unlike many instruments, drumming is quick and easy to learn, with only a few hand positions to learn, so new players find themselves joining in with the group quickly and easily.
Now in its 23rd year!
Beginners always welcome (7-45 to 9-45). Classes are every Tuesday evening from 7.45 to 10pm.
Teaching includes - basic support, how to hold and strike the drum, drum-fluency excercises, leading into basic part playing, then multiple parts in genuine West African rhythms on djembe and dunduns
Please call 07765 943107 if you have any questions.
