Hello my name is Joyce Lindsey,

I have been studying West African djembe, (traditional/ballet 3 set) dun-duns, culture and history for five years collectively. I am currently a member of all female drum and dance company called Ayodele Drum and Dance that is based out of Chicago, IL. I currently perform and continue to study West African music from Guinea, Mali, Nigeria, and the Ivory Coast through Ayodele and play for West African dance classes professionally.

I understand that teaching djembe requires a lot of patience as well as detailed but simple explanations/demonstrations of how to develop and improve djembe technique. Through my own experience with my djembe teachers and djembefolas like Bolokada Conde and Khalid Abdul Saleem over my five years of studying djembe, I was able to improve and develop my technique because my teachers were: patient, clear and detailed in their explanations, fun and concise when demonstrating simple and complex rhythms and able to break down ...

I love tailoring lessons to my students! Music is personal and I want to make sure you're learning what you're interested in or need to learn in order to prepare you for auditions or keep up in groups you play in. I always ask students for a list of music they're listening to or want to learn - nothing's off limits!

I've been taking lessons with Stephanie for about 3.5 months now. I was looking for a teacher with flexibility who could adapt their teaching to the student, rather than following a rigid lesson plan. Stephanie has been a great fit! Not only do I play songs that I want to learn, but also I feel like a lot of what we focus on learning is actually adapted to me. I love that if I want to experiment with a new technique, she encourages me and is there to guide me on how to approach it. Nothing ever feels out of reach (though it might take lots of practice). She focuses on consistent improvement rather than doing something right or wrong. Stephanie is also very responsive between lessons to answer questions, including with video demos. She's very helpful, positive, and overall fun to work with.

My first virtual lesson with Stephanie went really well. I was nervous as an adult beginner. Stephanie was very reassuring, engaging and fun.

I'm a big fan of the series "Alfred's Essentials of Music Theory," which takes the student from the rudiments of music theory through basic harmony.

If students prefer a more in-depth study of theory, we might try the books put out by ABRSM.

"My 13-yr old daughter took lessons from Gina for over a year. While my daughter LOVES to sing, she is quite inhibited in front of others. Luckily, Gina is so sweet and approachable, that my daughter was able to relax and focus on singing and developing her talent. What a difference a year makes! My family is so impressed with how far and refined her voice has become. We are moving to Michigan in a couple of weeks. We wish we could take Gina with us!"
