Hey Drummers!
How are you all doing? I hope everybody is very well and we've got some new, really fun drumming coming up for you! Yes! We are moving inside where it’s warm for the rest of the year. The address will be:

A really cool old Lexington brick building serving the Lexington community for about 80 years!
Please bring your djembe or other hand or stick drum to class. Also, bottled water and maybe earplugs if you’re sensitive. But, we won’t be playing hard!
We will be learning all about the djembe and how to play it well. We even created some ‘dos and don’ts’ for you! No matter where you travel and play djembe, you will be at the top of your game!
We begin October 15, 2020 at 7 PM.
We plan on making this a Thursday Night Drum Class starting next week. Come and see how much fun learning how to really play that djembe can be!

You will receive eight classes but you will not 
be able to make up a class at these low prices.

In 2016/17 Famoudou asked Alan to teach for him somedays at Famoudou's famous drummers' compound.  Mamady Keita has also asked Alan to fill in at times to lead workshops in America. Alan has taught djembe across the US as well as Europe and even in Guinea and The Gambia working with the great drummers there and all over the world.
