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.

First lesson, can tell we chose the right instructor. Excellent with my child. Knowledgeable.. my 11 year old is excited for more lessons!! :)

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..

Not enough space to write how excited our students. Murray knows drums In and OUT. We are beyond blessed to have him instruct us!

Private Djembe Teacher

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 ...

Joey has been a great cello teacher. I like the fact that his experience covers a broad range of music. When I want to make an arrangement of a heavy metal song, or I need to learn the nuance of baroque performance, he's there.
He's a working musician so his schedule is somewhat variable, but he is good about communicating and always comes when he says he will. He's personable and enthusiastic.
Linda
Joey is a creative and thoughtful teacher. He backs up interesting piano pieces with deep theory and classical training.

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.

I saw improvement each week from my lessons with Kerry. He offered great resources and gave me advise for purchasing my drums. After just 5 months, I could read and play music on my own!
