African Drum Classes
Now in their 13th year, the well-practiced Pracownia Bębnów are hosting regular lessons in which you can learn how to play the West African drums, djembe and dundun. In these classes you will learn the technique in theory and in practice. By learning basic sounds, original accompaniments, signals, arrangements, individual rhythmic compositions ... you will learn the rules that apply to traditional percussion music from Guinea and Mali.
The participants in their classes are people of all ages and professions, which is the best testimony to the fact that drumming is for anyone who wants it.
Meetings are once a week & there are three levels to choose from: - djembe 0 - for people starting - djembe 1 - continuation of last year's groups 0 - djembe 2 - continuation of last year's groups 1 - the group for dundun bass drums is open to all levels.
The schedule is placed as a photo in the discussion of the event. They provide instruments for classes, so having your own drum is not required.
