African Drumming

Y7 African Drumming, November 2016
Y7 African Drumming, November 2016

‘On Tuesday the 1st of November we had an exciting lesson on how to play the African drums. The lesson was great, we all learnt so many new things whilst, having a great time (we were all pleased that we were missing maths). The teacher was kind of mad, but a fun kind of mad. The drum I was playing was a djembe but there were other drums like the dundun, talking drum, bugarabu and some others.

When we arrived we firstly learnt how to hold the drum, then the different sounds on the drum (hitting the edge or the middle) then finally we played the drums! We did many tunes but my favourite was: ‘give the dog a bone, woof, woof, woof’ or ‘beans on toast, butter the bread.’ When I left the church hell 10.05am I knew way more things about African drumming then when I entered the room at 9:05am.’
