AFRICAN DJEMBE Beginner & Early Improver 8-Week Course

“Be Rhythm! Be Happy!”

For beginners and early improvers, adults and teenagers 12 yrs+.

We will play the West-African djembe (hand drum) and dunun (stick bass drum), study technique, sound and rhythm fundamentals, call and response, and learn parts for ensemble play of rhythms from West-African traditions.

Aim of this course is to empower students to enjoy the beauty and culture of African rhythm and encourage further study and practice.

Instruments are provided, or bring your own. Drum hire £1 per class.

Tutor Thomas Christen: “With a lifelong fascination for rhythm I have been practicing and teaching music for over 35 years. This has led me into many different rhythmic territories all across the globe.
It is the unique sound of the instruments in the West-African Djembe ensemble and the beautiful melodies created from the interaction of hand and stick/bass drums that touches, inspires and energizes me. The overwhelming joy one senses, when a rhythm flows, is a wonderful collective reward – an experience, I would like to share in my work.”
