Students will be expected to bring their own djembe to play, but there will also be an opportunity during the class to get familiar with the set of doun doun drums which are essential accompaniments to the djembe.

Location: Newland Studio, 35 Nursery Road, Hockley, Birmingham, B19 2XN.
Times: 3.15pm to 5.15pm on Sundays
Level: Intermediate
Cost: £10 for a 2 hour session.

Students will progress if they come to all 4 sessions, however they are welcome to just come to 1 or more if they wish.
Limited numbers of djembe instruments can be provided to borrow, however these need to be pre-arranged with Vieux in advance of the session. Call Vieux on 07518 750 179 to book a drum.
