Enjoy traditional hand drumming from Guinea, West Africa!

This class runs on Wednesdays, August 3 – 24, 6:00pm – 7:30pm

Helen Bond will share the great joy of traditional hand drumming from Guinea, West Africa! She’s been traveling to Guinea for the past 21 years studying the music and culture. You will learn basic rhythms on dunun drums and the djembe accompaniment parts. You’ll also learn the origins of each rhythm, receive expert instruction on all instruments in the traditional djembe orchestra and deepen your understanding of the place of music, dance, and song in West African life. Helen is able to work simultaneously with students of all levels – beginner to professional.

All levels are welcome! Drums will be provided should you not have one. No experience needed.
