Drumming Course

We are also running a four week Introductory Course to djembe drumming as a part of Bergvliet High School’s continuing education programme.

Djembe drums

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 but we also have drums for sale should you wish to purchase your own

The next course is being run on a Monday evening from 24 February – 14 March 2022 from 18:30 to 20:30.

If you’ve missed the start of the course, watch this space for details of the next course.

Private Tuition

We also offer Private Tuition should you prefer a one on one lesson at my place or 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.

Please contact us for more information.
