2017 Classes Timetable

The Djembe is a traditional hand-drum originating from West Africa and is central to the musical traditions of peoples such as the Malinke. More recently artists such as Ben Harper have made the djembe more recognised in popular culture. Notable exponents in Australia include the Bangoura brothers from Guinea.
Japanese Taiko drums are the largest drums in the world. Also known as festival drumming, the style of playing is called Wadaiko, known for its rigorous training requirements and awe-inspiring stage performance. Groups such as Ondekoza (Demon Drummers), Kodo and Drum Tao have put taiko drumming on the international radar over the last 20 years. Notable groups in Australia include TaikOz & Rhythm Hunters.
Djembe 1 – the beginner/intermediate Djembe class, for those interested in learning basic rhythms and technique.
Djembe 2 – Our more challenging Djembe class, this class emphasizes technique and more demanding rhythms.
Taiko 1 - Taiko 1 goes over the basics of taiko form and rhythm. Learn techniques and rhythms that you will expect to know in upper level classes.
Taiko 2 – Our intermediate class, for those who want a faster pace and to learn more intricately timed rhythms, Taiko 2 moves more quickly than Taiko 1 and focuses on getting an intimate understanding of rhythm.
Taiko 3- Our advanced taiko class- this is a fast paced class that focuses on unusual time signatures and movements.
Taiko Fitness – Taiko fitness is a drop-in class that is open to all skill levels and focuses more on the stamina, form and technique of taiko drumming. Improve yourself and your playing with an hour taiko course that makes you sweat! Due to popular demand – our taiko fitness class will now be running 2 nights per week – both Tuesdays and Thursdays! It’s great exercise and loads of fun. Get ready to sweat!
