Drum Making

Always wanted to make your own drum? Here’s your opportunity!

Learn the art of djembe making with the best quality djembes. Discover how they are crafted and what it takes get a great sound.

Village Drum Making is in my backyard over two beautiful two days. It’ll be relaxed and think of a little village tribe making craft…that’s how it’ll be. Included FREE is  a little private session during the weekend. We’ll focus on techniques and sharing insights into the art of the djembe. We also include  a 1 on 1 follow up session. So we can tighten the drum and I can help you any specific support you might need for drum making or playing.

This djembe comes with  lifetime tuning included for FREE.
