Learn from Jeremy
Answering the call of the djembe in 2005, Jeremy has been following West African music ever since. With a deep respect for the spirit and traditions of djembe, he has studied extensively in West Africa and Australia. His strong passion for sharing the heart of djembe, a love of teaching, and a willingness to always learn more, combine to create a class that is as challenging as it is rewarding. Jeremy heads up our corporate and teacher training facilitation team and manages our St Kilda headquarters in Melbourne.

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