Diverse Drumming Student Workshops

Program information

These active and engaging workshops aim to educate students in West African drumming techniques using djembe drums and dunduns. Led by our experienced tutor Yacou Mbaye, these workshops develop rhythm patterns and culminate in a performance work that can be taken back to school and shared with the school community.

Students and teachers attending this workshop can expect to learn about performing in an ensemble, keeping in  time and following a leader, different percussion instruments with a focus on the djembe drum, correct techniques for endurance and great sound, learning various rhythms that form a performance piece, and improvisation.

You can register your interest in this program and we will let you know when the next workshop is available.
