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.

We had a good meeting and Kevin answered some questions and we went over some homework that I need to work with. Starting with some basics and will build as we go.

Karen was not prepared for the lesson. She spent 15 minutes trying to send me photos from a beginner Tabla book available on Amazon. She did not own a set of Tabla drums. She ensured me she could teach anything, but could not pronounce the words used for proper Tabla technique, knew no history and could not even teach me to tune. She literally was reading out of the book figuring it out along the way. I lost a lot of trust from this and asked for a full refund for future lessons.
Erika H.
Karen is an incredibly skillful teacher. She is very passionate about music and it easy to be comfortable with her. She shares her training and knowledge very clearly. The vocal exercises seem very unique and holistic for body and voice health. She is very encouraging, caring, and soul-uplifting. I feel like I have a new connection with my voice and all that is connected to using it... as an instrument and the journey is only just starting. 45 minutes went by so fast. I am looking forward to my next lessons.

In these lessons our focus is mainly on hand drumming, teaching the student techniques and styles for various styles of hand drums from around the world.

There are many aspects of djembe playing including strength and co-ordination that only can be improve in our lessons. This is why my djembe lessons will be fun and can be of a great help.

Playing the djembe is a great way to enter into the percussion world. There are many playing opportunities (if you're willing to look) to play with an ensemble such as a church band or jamming with friends. Everyone needs a good djembe player! In djembe lessons my goal is to teach you basic techniques, music theory, and rhythms to get you comfortable enough to use your djembe skills to perform confidently with a musical group.
