Event description


African Djembe Drumming Course


The Munroe Center for the Arts

1403 Massachusetts Avenue


with Alan Tauber, Instructor, Drummer, Educator

Come learn and play the rhythms and drum sounds from West African countries in these 8-week Hand-Drumming Sessions with Alan Tauber, Instructor.

Intermediate and Beyond Drummers Level. While these class will be mostly comprised of drummers who have some playing experience, anyone is welcome. You’ll fit right in. There is always a part to play! We expect the playing level to be what our former Wednesday Class was except on Thursdays now.

The focus is on Authentic rhythms and good technique and feel, as well as African playing styles suited for the djembe drum and the African Bass Drums, called dunun.

Please consider joining us Thursdays in Lexington! Awesome, comfortable space for us. Registration is required. Fun is essential!

Alan teaches at multi-levels so everyone has challenges and successes. You are not too beginner for this class and you are not too advanced in drumming for this class, as well. Just show UP!

A drum is also required. A few rentals djembe are available for the semester at $75.- (take 'em home and practice). Buy the drum and take the $75.- off the cost! Reserve a rental by calling DrumConnection 781-316-8068. Please leave a message if we don't answer, and reference 'Thursday Class', please!
