West African Drumming Classes

Drum Effect’s weekly classes provide tuition of traditional rhythms from West Africa on the djembe and dundun drums and are delivered in 10-week courses. The beginner class is ideal for people new to West African drumming or those who like a casual hit of the djembe each week. The experienced class is for students who want to further their djembe studies by exploring more complex rhythms and solo phrases. Class teacher, Kate Susko, is a qualified teacher and accomplished djembe player who loves brightening up everyone's Wednesday night!
These 10-week courses are accredited by the ACT Teacher Quality Institute.
