‘African Drumming’ is a short practical course in various traditional styles of African Drumming.  The sessions are two hours long, and require a reasonable degree of mobility and energy.  A room with adequate free floor space is required for the course.  Each session of the course is stand-alone, although I would like to give sessions at three levels, Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced, and also have separate classes for children from 8 to 16.  These classes are well-suited to be given in blocks of three weekly sessions, with such blocks being offered on some regular basis.  Participants will truly enjoy themselves, and will carry away new rhythms and a different approach to drumming!
