African Drumming and Percussion course Info.
1st October 2008
We get asked about African Drumming and Percussion Classes from our customers quite a lot nowadays! Trish and I highly recommend Ben Lawrence over in Bristol. Trish has been working with Ben over many years now, primarily at his week long residential Djembe and African Percussion workshops. Trish says that Ben is " a gifted patient teacher who has a deep understanding of Polyrythmics and Ghanaian Traditional Music is one of his many specialities" We list below his present classes @ Bristol Uni.
