•Connect to Worlds of Rhythm • Heal with Drum Song • History is Found in the African Culture

DrumConnection takes the deeply rooted, 'genetic connection' humans have with music and combine it with the time-honored traditions of drumming and dance of many cultures, For the past 40 years, our main focus has focussed on African drumming of the 5-7 djembe/dunu specific countries, rhythms, people's lives, and we’ve formed a school for those at all skill and experience levels. We take it seriously and have enriching and fun classes and workshops. Join us today!

GET GOOD FAST: We love drums and drummers! Having played for over 60 years, I love to share what I know with as many people as I can. If you are interested in learning more about drumming, please contact us: info@drumconnection.com
