Expressive Drumming Class      

1st and 3rd Saturdays: 3pm - 4:30pm  (Or schedule a lesson)

$10 per class


Experience a unique style of hand drumming that is different from traditional African drumming. 

Rose is a singer-songwriter-guitarist who teaches original songs during class.

  • Learn techniques for playing the djembe (pronounced jembay).
  • Learn suggested rhythms for each song.
  • Learn how to accompany a guitar player.
  • Gain improvisation skills and enjoy "in-the-moment" music.
  • Engage in "conversations," when someone spontaneously responds to another's rhythm, adding unique input with each response. 
  • Participate in vocal toning (such as: Om...Hey...Ah...Heya).
  • Borrow one of our instruments (or bring one). 
  • Our classes are small, warm, friendly, and typically attended by adults. 
  • All ages and abilities are welcome.      
  • Feel free to lie down in the center for a while to feel the vibrations.     
  • Take home practice sheets for each song, with rhythms and lyrics.
