West African drumming

Join instructor Janice Hunton for a hands-on lesson in West-African drumming. Learn hand-drumming technique, West-African rhythms, and discover how the layers of these traditional rhythms work together.

If you are interested in learning more after this, you can sign up for a future Introduction to West-African Drumming class, which will begin in April.

Janice Hunton taught at the Perpich Center for Arts Education for 27 years and led the African Drumming Ensemble there for 15 years. She studied West-African music at the University of St. Thomas, Hamline University, and has traveled two times to the Dagara Music Center in Ghana.

  • Drums for up to 6 students at a time
  • Additional instruments
