Richard’s African drumming workshops and courses are enthusiastically received by participants and organisers alike, and further sessions (clearly not obligatory) often follow the initial engagement by popular request. Up to 40 drums (djembes) are provided at each session, (typically one hour in length), so that each member of even a large class in any establishment is fully involved in a meaningful introduction to this complex art form. In even a single one-off workshop led by Richard, students of any age and ability with no previous musical experience or recognised musical skill can gain a great deal, while at more advanced levels, established musicians and music students gain a deeper understanding of the practical workings of West African drumming ensembles.
