The drum circle is temporarily suspended until such time as I’m able to find a new venue as we are no longer able to drum at The Palms. If anyone knows of a suitable venue please be in touch – thank you.
Join other djembe drumming enthusiasts to learn new and exciting rhythms from all over Africa and some from further afield like Haiti and Cuba. Group bookings are essential to ensure we have sufficient drums for everyone.
Make new friends and become a part of the ever increasing drumming community. For updates and information relating to the drum circle and other drumming events follow us on Twitter or like our page on Facebook.
We are also running a four week Introductory Course to djembe drumming as a part of Bergvliet High School’s continuing education programme.
Learn how to play the djembe drum in this fun-filled course! You will learn how to hold the drum; the positions on the drum for the various ‘notes’; some simple and slightly more challenging rhythms and solos; how to read our drum notation and finally how to tighten and care for the drum. Drums are provided for use during the course and we have drums for sale should you wish to purchase your own
The course is held every term with the next course being run on Monday evening from 28 January – 18 February 2019 between 19:00 – 21:00.
To sign up for the course please contact Mrs Kathy Miles on:
Ph: (021) 712 0979
If you’ve missed the start of the course, watch this space for details of the next course.
We also offer Private Tuition should you prefer a one on one lesson in the comfort of your own home. You will learn traditional rhythms and solos at your own pace and ease. The lesson is normally an hour long but may be changed to suit your requirements and don’t worry if you don’t have a drum as one will be provided free of charge for use during the class.
