Hello Didi,
I hope this message finds you well and warm! Just a quick note to remind you of upcoming drumming classes starting soon!
African-Based Hand-Drumming For All Levels
Weekly Hand-Drumming Classes
Dear Drummers!
If you need some drumming in your lives to feel grounded, centered and ALIVE, we have quite a few classes coming up really soon, so don’t despair! Check out our offerings below and remember to register and not just show up as we need to knowhow many drums to bring.
For people who need a beginner class, check out our excellent Hand Drumming for Beginner Courses at Lexington Community Education on Tuesdays or ourNewton Community Ed Drumming Classes at Newton North High School.
Looking for something a little more evolved than that, I highly suggest ourNewton (really Waban) Drumming Class on Wednesday evenings (8 sessions). Waban’s at a cool place in a yoga studio in an area with some neat, inexpensive restaurants so we can all go out after class if you want to create a close community with all the students. Fun to do!
We also have cool and exciting drumming classes back at The Munroe Center for the Arts in Lexington on Mass Ave on Thursday Nights that’s not to be missed!
Both of these two classes are very easy to get to, surprisingly so. Depends where you live, of course.
Our classes are very popular so be sure to register early. We specialize in African style djembe music with fun rhythms and exciting and challenging solos. Dunun will be available at the more advanced groups. (Classes will not happen if there is a snowstorm so don’t worry about that)
All classes are T-accessible and have super-easy car parking too. A hand drum is necessary for class. Rentals are available. Please notify us if you will need to rent a djembe or ashiko for class by email or by phone. Leave a message if we don’t answer. We will confirm before your class starts.
Have a great day!
PS – We have NEW Guinea, Ghana and Ivory Coast Djembe of both Lengue and Djalla, Iroko woods as well as the Khadi. Perfect size, height and weight. Not to mention – SOUND. Try ’em out in class or I can visit you at your home with a great selection. No two drums can sound the same or feel the same.That’s why you should try at least 3 to 4 drums of highest quality.
Also, please remember we are a full service drum school. We teach drum kit in all styles and have a complete djembe and dunun repair facility. Group family classes arranged as is private study in your homes. More Here >>
Sincerely,
DrumConnection

Hello Jean-Paul,
Drummers!
I hope everyone’s doing very well. Greetings on this Monday:) I want to tell you about some upcoming classes in Brookline, Lexington, Newton and Malden.
And to make it easy, why not just list classes, and click on the links, and we’ll take you to where you want to go.
Honestly, I couldn’t be more excited about starting up a bunch of beginner drumming classes as I love teaching them. The Malden class, an all-levels class, is in a new location for us called, The Gallery – 7:30 to 9 PM starting this Wednesday. Parking is easy on street and there’s no stairs to deal with.
Drum rentals, if you need one, are available for all classes. Just let us know in advance if you will need one by calling us at DrumConnection or emailing me at alan@drumconnection.com.
Hope to see you this week especially Wednesday night where there are a few spaces left. I encourage you to sign up for that class because it will be the most fun! All of our classes are fun.
And I thank you, my brother, Babara Bangoura, Master djembefola – master teacher for an incredible weekend, an awesome weekend of learning djembe, song, dance, traditions, even a few secrets thrown in! I have never experienced that level of energy in any drum workshop I’ve ever produced!
Babara Bangoura will be back with us next year, God willing, and were thrilled with that. So to get ready, get out your djembes! Hey come to class! Most classes start this week!!
Love to all.

Some people have been studying with us for more than 25 years! The old-timers will tell you, this is THE place to get involved with a terrific community. And the youngsters will tell you how much they love drumming with us too! We plan to continue that tradition even more in the future.
Hello Jean-Paul,
Drummers and Friends.
Just a quick note about the Babara Djembe Workshops this weekend starting TONIGHT!
Hello!
Receiving this? Means you have registered and we expect to see you Friday (tonight) or/and and Saturday and Sunday. And if you have not, please do. It will be the most fun and informative drumming event of the year!
• Friday is also at 7 PM begins at 7 PM – 9 PM. We’ll open doors at 6:30 PM
• Saturday #1 is Noon to 3PM outside at he Banks of the River Charles LOT #4 Soldiers Field Rd. Brighton, MA 02134 Chair, drums, water, hat.
• Saturday #2 is 5 PM to 8:00 PM at Fox Library
• Sunday is 1 PM – 4 PM at Fox Library
Please bring your djembe, we have water but I’d bring a bottle. DRINK WATER at drumming events. Bring a phone that records or any audio device. Both Android and Apple and probably Google and Nokia make great recording audio only phones. Possibly paper if you write.
No video until we unleash the ghost of teachers past! I’d love some Instagram, snap chat, Facebook live but we need to limit the length and Twitter of course. Fun, overwhelming relief captured by our new windows to life. Short quick snippets.
Stuff: YOUR DJEMBE! Earplugs but you might not need em. We have the foam ones for everyone.
Please, no coffee downstairs and you can’t play our drums with rings, watches or bracelets. You shouldn’t with yours either but that’s your choice. Ours – no.
Directions: You are coming to Fox Branch Library, 175 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA 02474 – my cell if lost or stolen: 617-686-6080. This is to the Right of DrumConnection the former store,. Except 12-3 Saturday. Outside at the Charles or if inside Munroe Center for the Arts right up the road into the beginning of Lexington.
Parking: Come down Cleveland Street right next to us for the other side (it’s a one-way and park on either side a close to Mass Ave as you can. Or park on Mass Ave either side and also there side street right across Mass Ave.
You may ignore resident parking signs as they are not in effect. Do NOT ignore “Don’t park here” in front of the Library. It’s chancy. No fire hydrants, no handicapped spaces. It may be a little tight because people come drum or go to see an Air Conditioned movie.
If you start to get even a gram of frustration. Take at Turn at the Restaurant Zhu (big Green sign) and your first R into the big parking lot! Ignore signs. They don’t really close and you will be safe and sound there. Worry free. Walk across Mass Ave and you are there with us in 20 seconds.
And I am looking for a few helpers to reorganize the room, Might take 30 minutes of fairly light work.
PS – We are comfortable AC’d! And bring any questions so I don’t have to answer more tonight 🙂 Love you all!
Thanks for supporting African Drummers and their cultures here with us in this way, it saves lives and changes lives. So more reasons for enjoying drumming and learning together.
Remember you can do this! Babara is a very caring and fun teacher and you will feel welcome.
See you soon.

‘Writing & Photo Assignment’
Group Drumming
What a group! You DrumConnection friends are really cool. So many of you stopping by to buy us out and say ‘goodbye’! Or ‘so-long for now’.
14 Days left to make a purchase of a brilliant drum – perfect just for you, wall art (antiques – masks, dogon doors, sculptures like Nimba and Kakilambe, cymbals, a few drum-kits and TONS of bells and shakers! Got Cow! Skin and Bell.
Join us!
And SO many of you have come in saying how much you’ll miss this very place we’ve grown into, since we started 31 years ago. And that is very sweet that you appreciate our child, DrumConnection. More to say about that much later. Now… I propose an idea…
ASSIGNMENT
If each of you would take a few moments and write a story that happened to you at our school or shop or a feeling you have, an experience you fondly remember, be it funny or enlightening. Whatever.
WRITING
Please send me your writing to alan@drumconnection.com and I willcollect them as that will mean so much to me. (This is not easy for me either, but I have hope of the future, don’t worry). If I publish them on DrumConnection site, your stories and remembrances – names not identified.
VISUALS
Maybe you have a photo or video you would like to share with the world! That would be so cool to have a collection of any photo of you and your drum or at a drum class or drumcircle with us! Even snap one today! You look good today!
HOW IT HELPS
This homework assignment is designed to let you be you and give me what you want. There are no rules, just have to have a tie to DrumConnection and/or it’s employees, teachers, drums you had skinned here or bought here. Bring it! Let’s hear from you. It will help with closure, I think. I would really appreciate your responses, so much.
INCENTIVE – WHAT YOU WIN!
I will chose the top 5 that I like and you will each WIN a full hour private lesson on the drum of your choice. I teach most all types and styles of drums.
Get Busy!
Thank you.
Alan
