Schedule/Tuition:

Saturday Morning Beginning Class: 10-11:30 am
Starts September 20, 2008 — 6 weeks
$120/adults, $90/youth 13-17 years old


Registration & Class Structure:

  • You must register by mail, phone or e-mail by Friday, September 19, so we know how many people to expect. You can either mail in your full tuition in advance, or bring cash or a check made payable to James Banks on the first day of your class. If the class is canceled for any reason, we'll refund any tuition you've paid in advance.
  • We'll need a minimum of 5 students so everyone can experience the interplay of the voices in the djembe orchestra--all 3 bass drums interacting with several djembes.
  • Returning CDP Students: If we are teaching a rhythm you've studied with us before, you may be eligible for a discount. Contact us for details.
  • The Woodshed is very thorough, with lots of time devoted to learning each aspect of the music. You can miss one or two weeks and still have a complete learning experience, but if your schedule won't allow you to make three or more classes, you should wait for the next set of Woodsheds.
  • We don't pro-rate or give credit for missed classes, but if you know ahead of time that you'll be absent, let us know, and we can tape the class for you.
  • If you don't own a djembe, or if you own a synthetic drum, we have an authentic, wood-and-goat-skin djembe for you to use in class.
  • Lastly, please help us practice our art form and profession as teachers by encouraging your friends to take the Woodsheds rather than giving them the instruction, notes or tapes yourself. We appreciate it!
