Setting the tone for percussion instruction, Drum Africa’s experienced teachers hit the right notes with their African drum classes, designed to bring a taste of percussive tribal music to the West. Laurence Hill, the lead instructor, has spent time in Guinea, Ghana, Senegal, Mali and other African countries, learning djembe drum music directly from the areas’ tribes. Drum Africa members also regularly perform at jazz clubs and festivals in South East London and beyond.
Learn to play the Djembe drum in a relaxed and friendly environment – Lessons held in central Greenwich location. Two tutors lead the sessions, which focus on Guinean and Ghanaian djembe music – which includes singing – and the tutors aim to tailor classes to individual members based on their interests and strengths.
I’m not quite sure if this is a hot deal or not, as I don’t have experience with African drum lessons and this is the first time I’ve seen an African drum lesson deal, so there are no comparisons! But compared to other lesson deals we have seen, £9 for two 75 minute group lessons is a good price.
The reason why I’m featuring this deal is because its something unique on a daily deal site – and its nice to see interesting offers that you might never have known before. Like this Djembe drum lesson from Drum Africa, based next to Greenwich DLR station at the 10 Centre, which is a newly built community centre.
If you do for this deal, do remember that unless you bring your own Djembe drum for the lessons, you will have to hire one for £3 per session.
