HUMANS of DJEMBE – Part 15 – MICK SMITH ( Rockhampton)

Music started in my life with guitar lessons in 1970, little did I realise the impact music would have on me in later life.

I stumbled humans of djembe 15into west African drumming in a drum making workshop in 1997. I have been working as teacher aid in a Primary school since 1997.

Drumming was an instant hit with kids there as it is everywhere. I have been running regular classes since 2002. The great thing about African drumming is that in a few moments people can be playing music and today I still enjoy seeing people learning and playing music for the first time, seeing their confidence grow and pleasure they receive.

EVERYONE HAS RHYTHM, its my responsibility as a drum teacher to help you find it!!
