What we're about

Come and join our group of drummers who love meeting up to play the djembe and dundun rhythms of West Africa. No experience necessary and no need to book a course - try it for a night and see if you like it! I've been running this community group / class in High Wycombe since 1998. There are 3 levels beginners, intermediate and advanced. You will learn how to play the djembe (goblet shaped hand drum) and get to play many of the amazing traditional rhythms from West Africa. When you're ready, you can also join the performance group, The Hartbeats Vitae Drummers.
