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.

Aaron is a good instructor. Luckily I practiced quite a bit before hands to be able to catch up with the speed. The video audio quality are not that great though.
