Originally from W. Africa, the Djembe is a drum for solo and ensembles. Wikipedia says it can be a Solo drum, due to its volume. My experience is usually with groups, i.e. at Sinclair College's choirs, adding interesting patterns and sounds. My approach is similar to Conga, although private lessons will include other interesting aspects of rudiments and if enough people, the possibility for a percussion group or ensemble would be fun and engaging.

Find the voice of the djembe without the pain! Learn to play your drum along with any kind of music! You will learn to speak the words which represent the tones of the drum, and quickly learn multiple parts of rhythms you'll remember forever! We can also explore the family of 3 Dunun (Bass Drums) and the other rhythmic instruments such as shakers and bells. Easily understand the "clave" patterns and rhythmic structures of African drumming, with a look to their roots in countries such as Guinea and Senegal, as well as how they have evolved into popular American culture.

About Peter

I am a student of various great drum teachers from many backgrounds. Experienced players enjoy jamming with me, but I have been told that I am especially gifted at helping beginners feel comfortable finding rhythms and sounds out of any instrument, including the human body.

I take a holistic approach to teaching the Djembe. It is not just about memorizing beats. It is about returning to your natural state where you are in touch with the pulse of life, which is carried through you into the Djembe or anything else you do for that matter. The Djembe's simplicity offers a wonderful invitation for a beginner to return to their knowing of rhythm.

About Jonathan

Aloha, I love music! And I naturally want to share what I love, so that is why I am open to teaching anyone who has a desire to learn. Music helps us embody a natural state of being as we must become balanced in receptivity and action in order perform it. It is such a joyful act done right

Jonathan is a great instructor. I would recommend him to anyone looking to take guitar lessons. He challenges his students and encourages them along the way.

Feedback - Gotta Luv It!

John is a brilliant teacher in my opinion for the following reasons:- He seems to be able to identify my own goals better than me- Laid back but still motivational- His ability to explain some of the patterns and relationships, particularly in the way he has made me think about the minor/major scales and how to use them together has been a huge help to me- Everything we do has a point that makes sense and keeps the lessons inspirational and funJohn's relaxed style, encouragement and ability to push me exactly where I need to go really works for me and I would definitely recommend him to anyone with a genuine interest in learning how to really become a better guitarist.

Sean has been teaching my 10-year old son percussion for almost two years. Before covid, my son had lessons in-person. Since covid, my son has been doing lessons online. Sean has done an amazing job teaching my son in-person and online.

Sean really knows percussion. I've witnessed this both during lessons and when my family watched him perform with the Lone Tree Symphony. Sean is wonderful with kids. Although my son has attention issues, Sean is extremely patient, and he is able to efficiently redirect and focus my son. With Sean, music lessons are enjoyable. He has taken the time to get to know my son and how my son learns. I feel like the lessons are tailored extremely well for my child's abilities. Best of all, Sean is just a wonderful person. He's easy to talk to and has a great sense of humor. My son looks forward to his lessons with Sean each week. You won't find a better percussion instructor!

"I started lessons with Kevin knowing nothing about playing the Djembe. He made broke down the fundamentals and made it easy to learn the basics and then build from them. He gives lots of great advice which helped me get engaged in a local women's drumming group. I credit Kevin's great lessons for getting advanced in that group (Women's Drumming Center/Minneapolis) to the more experienced drum circle. I would recommend Kevin to anyone who wants to take up playing drums of any kind."
