Andy Gleadhill takes a detailed look at the African Drumming – Secondary – 5 Djembe Drum Pack. This 5 djembe Group African Drumming Package is perfect for lunchtime, after school groups or for small class groups for KS3 and KS4 (age 11 and older) pupils and adult players. For full details of the pack: https://www.drumsforschools.com/product/african-drumming-secondary-5-djembe-drum-pack-2/
The Pack includes 5 top quality djembe drums. There are three sizes of djembe, all with appropriately sized playing heads, and the three sizes will enable your group to differentiate the low, medium and high parts of many African Drumming pieces. Also included is world music expert Andy Gleadhill’s African Drumming Book 1, which will take you from basics through to your first performance in just 10 lessons and there’s plenty of repertoire for a year or more of playing.
The djembes have been specially designed for use in the classroom: the drum heads are extra strong, the shells are smooth inside and out and the rubber edging protects both the drums and the floor surface. Special storage/carry bags are also available and will help to prolong the instruments’ lives as well as making it safe and easy to move them around for outside events.
