A pleasant and powerful sound comes from a balance between control and relaxation. With the right guidance, students who have struggled with their sound for years can solve their problem in a matter of weeks.
“I want to understand how djembe music works”
Musical information about rhythm structure, conventions, and pattern repertoire is transmitted by osmosis in Africa. Therefore, if you study the djembe outside of its original environment, you will need formal explanations to understand how things work.
“I need more vocabulary”
Your repertoire can help you make a good impression, but more than that, the extent of your vocabulary will help you make choices about how you want to communicate.

When does a course finish?
If you practice like a monk everyday some courses can be completed in 30 days. That said, regular practice is the golden rule, so I encourage you to take your time and review previous lessons from time to time. There are levels of internalization that cannot be rushed through by hard work, time and persistence are your friends.
The content of some courses is organized by levels, while others mix INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED material. When you register for courses organized by levels, you have immediate access to the BASIC level, then to the INTERMEDIATE level 15 days later and to the ADVANCED level 15 days after the INTERMEDIATE level has been unlocked. If you try to override this restriction, a message saying "The course has not yet been released" will be displayed. This does not mean that the course is not ready or has not been published, but that you cannot access it until it is unlocked for the reasons explained above.
Why is that?
To prevent students from moving on to lessons that will not be as beneficial as they should be because the previous content has not been given enough time to be understood and practiced.
How long do I have access to a course?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to your course(s) for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
How long do I have access to a Membership?
When a course or a bundle is available with a Membership registration, after enrolling, you have access to your course(s) as long as your subscription is active.
Paypal and Stripe
When you purchase a course, you can use either Stripe or Paypal. However, since Paypal does not support recurring payments, you must use Stripe to enroll in a membership.
What if I am not happy with the course?
If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact me in the first 15 days and I will give you a full refund. No questions asked.
“Important concepts every intermediate Djembe player should know, beautifully presented.”Pavel Agapov
“The steps are clearly shown. The examples about Djembe and voice are perfect to avoid misunderstandings...”Stefanie Rüesch - Teacher
“No es fácil. Cabeza, cuerpo y corazón han de ir juntos. Los pequeños detalles hacen grandes diferencias. Es una sensación física.”Jean-Pierre Crevoisier
“The Binary Ternary & More Course is very illustrative. Because the particular phrasing makes Djembe music so unique, this course is fundamental. I got such a good insight into how to phrase appropriately and the assignments are very helpful to get to that stage. Learning how to sing Djembe rhythms properly brought my rehearsing to a next level. Big up!”Fabio Meier
“Organized solos makes them understandable by the listener, which is what we want as musicians... Great stuff again! Congratulations!”Michel Weelen - Teacher
“Great teaching!”Clifford Koufman - Teacher
“Texto muito bem estruturado e de fácil entendimento, com conteúdo e esclarecedor.”Paulo Martins
“Thank you! This is perfect for me. I have been practicing djembe between 8 to 12 hours a week for the last 3 years. Making sure my time with my drum really counts is deeply important to me. All advices in this intro are crystal clear, and this, I truly appreciate. Onward with the ‘new’ with pride and patience. ”Shan Fay
