Description
Let’s face it: playing djembe as it’s traditionally played can be really hard on your hands. The Gentle Djembe for Beginners series is the only set of DVDs for beginning hand drummers - especially adultbeginners - who want to experience the joys of playing djembe while going easy on their hands.
It was created by Alan Dworsky, the best-selling author of  How to Play Djembe and two-time winner of DRUM Magazine’s readers’ poll for 'Best Percussion Method Book.'

Each of the step-by-step lessons on Volume 3 starts like a private lesson and ends with Alan’s entire class playing the rhythm, so you also get a sense of what it’s like to play in a group. West African rhythms--including kpegisuand dunumba—are adapted to a Gentle Djembe style, so that you can play safely and comfortably no matter what your age. Each lesson also has a matching play-along track, and the DVD contains a PDF file with charts of all thepatterns, so the the video is a complete learning tool. Shot in gorgeous wide-screen format and endorsed by Arthur Hull as 'the most non-intimidating way for beginning beginners to get started.'

In Volume 3, you’ll enter the polyrhythmic world of 6/8 time, while still going easy on your hands. You’ll learn patterns adapted from powerful West African rhythms - including kpegisu and dunumba -as well as one of the most popular 6/8 bell patterns. Like the first two Gentle Djembe videos, Volume 3 provides clear, step-by-step instruction with the feel of private lessons. And in addition to separate play-along tracks,this DVD includes a PDF file with charts of all the patterns.
