Republika Rytmu welcomes students of all ages- children, teens, adults and senior citizens- to enrol on our djembe course. We offer lessons for all levels of ability; for beginners as well as for those who are already familiar with the instrument. All lessons are individual (private) which allows us to tailor the course to the individual needs and abilities of the student.
Learning to play African drums- the djembe, as well as being great fun is a fantastic way to develop sound-hand-eye co-ordination. It empowers the player with exceptional energy, it reduces stress and anxiety and releases hidden emotions.
The course includes among other things: hand movement co-ordination, correct sound emission from the instrument and basic rhythms and their combinations (e.g. 3/4, 4/4), samba, rumba etc). Course participants will learn about the anatomy and the various types of djembe as well as learning how to tune the instrument. A couple of times during the semester, for those who are keen, we organise group lessons during which students have the opportunity to play with other djembists.
For children aged 4-7 years we have developed a program of djembe group classes. Children are combined into groups of 2-5 people according to age and skills.
During classes, children learn a variety of percussion instruments, various rhythms and the culture of many regions of the world.
Learning to play djembe shapes motor coordination in children and increase their development of motor and emotional skills. In addition, children develop musical imagination, shape sense of rhythm and musicality, and above they have great fun.
Enrolment for the course runs throughout the year. To begin with, we invite you to a trial lesson (65zl/60mins) with no obligation to continue, but which gives you the opportunity to get to know the teacher and to familiarise yourself with the course programme.
All materials such as notes and course books needed for the course are provided by the school and the student doesn't incur any other costs other than the course fee.
