We offer Professional Development for education professionals who wish to engage classes through hands on interactive drumming with our mobile djembe school. We come to your school with a large selection of various styles of African Drums. Each class of up to 30 pupils will receive their own drum to use. The class teacher will be given a lead drum and sit with the facilitator for the whole programme learning side by side. By the end of the programme the teacher will be proficient in leading 30 pupils in a performance piece. This usually runs for 1 hour per week over a 10 week term ie: 10 sessions.

These courses are designed specifically for teachers, with an emphasis being given to the ability to teach a group of people. We offer the courses to help fill the gap in a teacher’s knowledge, and so the courses are all about the djembe and facilitation itself, and how to create beautiful and interesting music with a group using just drums and percussion. Minimum of 10 participants. Please register your interest using the contact form.
1 to 1 Sessions
These sessions are available to those who want to focus on gaining a knowledge of rhythms and technique to use on their own groups.
