Drum Building and Repair Apprenticeship Program

Presented by Alex Wedmedyk.

This is an ongoing workshop to learn the ins and outs of crafting or repairing a djembe, the large goblet-shaped drum of West Africa. If you wish to make your own drum during this week, you can do so. You can pick your own natural wood drum shell and hide from those we provide, complete the assembly and receive a lesson in making "diamonds" to keep the drum tight and tuned. This class takes several hours over two days. If you just need your drum repaired, you can drop it off and get it fixed. Fees vary; contact Alex for more detailed information at: earthrhythm@gmail.com
