Introduction to African Drumming & Percussion

Every Thursday (Starting 23rd March)

Classes at 4:30pm ages 7 - 12

12 weeks – 45 mins per lesson - €90

Book now as places are limited

Let’s Make Music’s group classes in African Drumming & Percussion are designed to introduce anyone to the basic rudiments of music without worrying how to read music notation or tablature. Our introductory course will guide you through the basics in a fun, supportive and energetic environment.

Rhythm is one of the main ingredients used to make music. African music has embraced this throughout history by intertwining music and everyday life. The sounds of African Drumming have always been a fun and inspiring source of music and our classes are dedicated to showing this. Students will learn about percussion, rhythm and the use of different sounds to create some of the earliest music known to us. Using Djembe drums, natural agogo, caxixi and beaded shakers, we’ll begin with simple warm-up drumming exercises to teach basic African Drumming techniques along with Call & Response patterns to develop aural skills. Students will then learn how to play their first African style rhythms which will grow into a performance piece.

Our introduction courses provide you with a great opportunity to learn the skills needed to begin playing. As soon as you sit our teachers ensure that you start off on the right note!
