Freshly back from his tour of Ghana Africa, come and share some of the gems gathered from Nathans time studying with the Griots (traditional holders of musical knowledge) in Africa.
A course not to be missed, we will start with the very basics, and over the 6 weeks build to playing as a full African percussion ensemble in a fun, social, supportive environment.
Benefits of hand drumming Include:

Nathan Bregmen has been playing drums for over 20 years, and has been studying african drumming for around 9 years.
Captured by the ability of african drumming to build community and bring people together playing music in a short space of time, the African Drum has quickly become Nathans instrument of choice.
His light hearted but attentive teaching style has quickly made him a favourite with many students around the country.
