African Drum Class in Wyndmoor with Quint Lange
AFRICAN (Djembe) DRUMMING Classes with QUINT LANGE For the NEXT SCHEDULED UP TO DATE SESSION click on "About us"... below the photo above, on the left. *NOTE* - In the attempt of clarity, these classes are sometimes scheduled for Wed & Thurs. evening and for different lengths of time and costs. Because the settings on how to list this information on this site are fixed, the actual day, time and cost cannot be posted. I am sorry if this is confusing. Also, students sign up from other networks that do not reflect the actual number of attendees from this site. Location will be at my home in Wyndmoor, PA 19038. on street parking If you haven't already signed up or if you have any questions, please send an email to [masked] or call me at[masked]. Thanks! Ron QUINT LANGE Whether on club dates from St. Barthe to the Turks and Caicos, to Key West and points north to Bar Harbor, Maine; or in classroom and concert settings in Key West, at the Institute du Development de la Personne in Quebec, or having assisted and performed with Babatunde Olatunji (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzVjLEzN36M&t=56s) at the Omega Institute in New York St, it has been Quint Lange's pleasure and privilege to play drums for dancers for nearly thirty five years. "WE ARE THE DRUM" is a hand drumming workshop taught on the West African djembe, (and jun-jun/bell for those interested) for beginning to "advancing" players, starting with the basics as given by Babatunde Olatunji and moving into West African and Afro Caribbean rhythms with the emphasis on pulse, flow and developing the awareness that as drummers, and musicians in general, we walk a fine line between playing and being played by the music. Making music together involves a collective awareness, a communal agreement as to how we relate to and use the flow of time, choosing moments of sound and silence to create rhythm. Our goal as a drum ensemble is to become one drummer with as many hands as are playing. Drumming, dancing and singing have the power to elate, to heal, and to heighten one's spiritual and physical well being. Music is a gift we are all blessed with to one extent or another and the way to honor that gift is to use it and to share it, through teaching, performing, or simply sending a joyful noise into the universe around us. -Ase-

The number of classes and cost of a class session will vary during the course of a year. Most often, there will be six class sessions.

Most of the folks who take these classes are adults. However, from time to time, there are requests from parents regarding their children who may be interested. On the occasions that this has happened, we have had varying degrees of success of that child hanging in there. (so to speak) if this situation speaks to a need of yours, we will first need to discuss over the phone. On all of these prior occasions the parent either took the class as well or was present in the class to make sure everything was okay. If and when that was established, sometimes the child was dropped off and picked up afterwards. We've had ages 9 -16 over the years.

Drums (djembes) are on hand for class use as well as for purchase.

On street parking.
