An introduction to the world of West African music and how to practically teach it.
We’ve designed this course to be accessible for people with little to no drumming experience, reflecting one of the most empowering aspects of this music: it’s really easy to learn (though tough to master!). The primary tool of the trade is the djembe, however the skills translate across to the other instruments too. We introduce several key tools, including the Workshop Template and Rhythmic Flow Chart: your blueprint for the music and how to teach it. Level 1 covers a range of applications for different ages and skill levels with resources and materials to equip you with road-ready skills and confidence.
Prerequisites: None; no drumming or facilitation experience needed
