This is the complete method book for the djembe, an African tuned drum that is becoming ever more popular in various styles of music. The author starts from this happy pre-supposition: Everyone can play the djembe! This instrument has characteristic sounds and phrases, from bold to extremely subtle. One musician stated, Beating the drum with bare hands is not only playing the drum. It is truly touching the sound which is intangible. The method starts at the very beginning, defining the most basic aspects of the drum and its playing. Progressive exercises, teaching increasingly complex rhythms, accents and phrasing, comprise the bulk of the method.
