The lessons entail:
• Djembe hand technique.
• Many rhythms will be covered from West Africa and other earth tribes.
• Learning to play other percussion instruments (bass drums, cow bells, shakers and much more).
Drumming will alter your mindset, keep you in the moment and dissipate all anxiety, anger, aggression and fear. It leaves you feeling centered & connected to your higher self.
 
What you’ll need for the lessons:
• A Djembe drum – hire a drum @ R40 or bring your own. You can also buy one from us.
• Please bring something for yourself to drink – we have lovely water – NO alcohol please!
 
Drum details:
• At Klitsgras Drumming we have drums for sale if you do not have one
• The prices range from R380 to R1500.
• The prices depend on the size and quality of the drum.
• You would need a drum to practice your drumming rhythms/techniques/skill.
 
 
I am looking forward to sharing knowledge of percussion and pushing our boundary of one of the oldest instruments in the world & learning with you all.
 
Drumming will alter your mindset, keep you in the moment and dissipate all anxiety, anger, aggression and fear. It leaves you feeling centered & connected to your higher self.
 
I hope to share the power, spirit & love of drum & percussion with you!
 
Here is an article that really encapsulates the power of drumming and what it does for the human mind, body & spirit.

One quote for this interesting article I’d like to share with you … “Your Brain on Drums:
Drumming is a great workout for your brain and actually can make you smarter because when you drum you access your entire brain. Research shows that the physical transmission of rhythmic energy to the brain actually synchronizes the left and right hemispheres. So, when the logical left hemisphere and the intuitive right hemisphere of your brain begin to pulsate together, your inner guidance system – or intuition – becomes stronger.
And listening to drum sounds regularly can have the same effect as drumming itself.
The sound of drumming generates new neuronal connections in all parts of the brain. The more connections that can be made within the brain, the more integrated our experiences become. This leads to a deeper sense of self-awareness.
Drumming also appears to synchronize the lower areas of the brain (non-verbal) with the frontal cortex (language and reasoning). This integration produces feelings of insight and certainty.
Drumming will alter your mindset, keep you in the moment and dissipate all anxiety, anger, aggression and fear. It leaves you feeling centered & connected to your higher self.cit Disorder (ADD), after a stroke, or where there is neurological disease such as Parkinson’s.”
