Learn from Alena

A formidable percussionist and natural teacher, Alena graduated from the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts in 2008. Since starting on drum kit at the age of 10, she has fuelled her instrument ADD by branching out into all sorts of classical, mallet and African percussion. She has a passion for educating young (and young at heart) minds on the culture, music, song and dance for which Africa is renowned. Alena has taken two extended tours to Ghana. She hopes to one day own a two storey house where the top floor is completely dedicated to drums

The emphasis at the Beginner Level is on:

  • Having fun

  • Learning basic technique on the djembe (bass, tone and slap)

  • Appreciating West African music

  • Developing groove, control & listening skills

  • Working together to become an ensemble
