If you’ve ever thought you might like to try West African drumming, this is your chance to see the drums, learn about how they work, and even try a little drumming. If you are interested in learning more after this, you can sign up for a future Intro to West-African Drumming class, which will begin later this fall.

Learn hand-drumming technique, West-African rhythms, and discover how the layers of these traditional rhythms work together.

About the instructor: 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
