Paulo Mattioli: First Lessons Djembe: Djembe

Instrumental Album | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Instrumentation Percussion
Composer Paulo Mattioli
Publisher Mel Bay Publications
First Lessons Djembe provides a fun and easy way to learn to play the Djembe. It was conceived for the beginning Djembe player, yet contains information and reference material that is valuable for players at all levels. Playing the Djembe is a lifelong journey of self-expression, as well as self-discovery. While the material presented herein may at first glance seem elementary, the value and importance of it in terms of moving forward on the drumming path with the Djembe is truly invaluable. The fundamentals of playing dynamics and tonality are the benchmarks of mastering musicality on the Djembe and worthy of a lifetime of continued practice and refinement. I encourage you to enjoy this journey every step of the way.
