Djembe Drumming Class for Noobs

With Tom The Pom



1.5 hours 1 to 30 (public classes), 12 to 60 label $30


Get ready to get your groove on- hand drumming is the beginning of music. Djembe is the classic West African drum- we’ll start with the basics and build up to a polyrhythm before long.

Tom has lead drumming workshops over 20 years in seven countries, so you’ll be amazed how soon you’ll be playing some hypnotic beats!

Grab a ticket to Ukulele for Noobs straight after this class for an entire evening of musical adventures!

Please note: This class requires at least eight students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

  • All fantastic djembe drums will be provided

  • A plethora of dad jokes from Tom (worth the ticket price alone)


What to bring

  • If you’ve got a djembe, bring it! Otherwise just bring your enthusiasm

Thoroughly enjoyable experience. Tom is an entertaining teacher who really knows his stuff.

My main instrument is classical guitar, however this class was extremely beneficial for learning different rhythms, and how to keep time properly.

Now I want to go out and get a djembe of my own!

Great fun. Good hands on session for learning and love how the teacher came up with little chants to learn the beats easier. You don’t even think about it and you are learning. He made quite a lots jokes as well, pretty funny guy.

Thanks for a brilliant class! Lots of fun, for all abilities, and Tom was very personable. Everyone felt like pros from the start. Now I’m stuck with African drumming rhythms in my head! :)
