LESSONS AND WORKSHOPS
If you want to experience what it's like to hit a Djembe, Conga or Bongo like a percussionist than you can follow lessons or book a workshop with me. I do both private and group lessons. So whether you like personal attention or want to have some fun group dynamic, I'll get you set up and playing in no time!
I teach both Latin and West-African percussion.
If you're interested in knowing more about the West-African rhythms like Mendiani, Soko or Dundunba on Djembe and Dundun I'm more than happy to teach you. Every thursday I teach an beginner/intermediate group between 20:00 and 21:00. Private lessons are possible but personally I suggest learning this kind of music in a group. It's way more fun that way! Book your lesson here.
Every month I organise a Djembe and Dundun masterclass together with Ponda O'Bryan for advanced players. Hit me up if you're interested or check my facebook page.
When you're more into Latin music I offer private lessons in my studio. Together we'll explore the basics on Congas and Bongo for Salsa or Folkloric rhythms like Guaguanco, Palo or Makuta. The price for one hour is € 40 and € 20 for half an hour.
The address of my studio:
Soundport Studio 2.02
3029 BS Rotterdam
For schools and companies I provide fun workshops on either Djembe's or just plain old buckets — which give of a real cool street music-y vibe. Djembe workshops can be done for groups up to 20 persons and buckets up to 30 persons.
Usually the workshops last an hour, which is the perfect amount of time to learn something new and keep it fun. If you have an idea of your own just let me know!
