On July 21, we will have a special guest teacher, Lansana Kouyate for the Saturday Drum Class. Lansana hails from Guinea, West Africa and plays the balafon as well as the djembe. He conducted a workshop for us in April of this year and was a guest artiste at the May Big Show.
Drum class on Saturday 21 will start at 3:45 pm. Please arrive early so we can stat on time. If you wish to speak to and get acquainted with Lansana, he will be available at the studio at 3:00 pm.
This special workshop is included in the tuition of monthly paid djembe students. Drop in fee for this special workshop is $15 at the door. Lansana will also be playing for the drum class.
This will be a mixed-level workshop so please pass the word and encourage other drummers to attend. This is a great opportunity to receive first hand information and instruction from a master musician.
Private one-on-one lessons will be available on Sunday 22. This will be ideal for those students who want a more in-depth experience and a chance to work on specific projects. These private slots are limited so please call early for an appointment time if you are interested.
