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.

Cathy Gertz
Murray has a unique way of finding the way to teach an individual based on their strengths and weaknesses and how their brain thinks and learns. My 52 year old brain doesn't always get it but Murray always finds a way or technique for me to understand so that I can play and be the best that I can be whether I playing my drums or playing my cajon..

Private Djembe Teacher

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 ensemble.
