Drumming Classes Palmwoods

Never tried African Drumming before?

You can book your $10 Intro Class HERE

Drumming is great for fitness, coordination, memory, stress relief and encourages community, friends and laughter. Our classes learn a new West African rhythm every 4 weeks. The different parts to the rhythm are taught on West African Djembe drum and each student will learn 2-3 different parts to each rhythm and then will learn to play these parts alongside dundun and solo djembe. In the classes you will play call and response warm up exercises, breaks, and learn djembe technique. You will be taught the story around each rhythm and quite often you will see the dance that accompanies it. You do not need coordination to start drumming. We will have you grooving to the rhythm in no time!

There are drumming classes in Palmwoods for everyone. There are three different classes and these are called Kalankora Foli for the Beginners Drum Class, Badenya Foli for the Intermediate Drum Class and Foli Kan for the Experienced Drum Class. Foli means play in the Manding languages and play is what we are all about!!
