The next six-week class series at Shallowford Presbyterian will begin Thursday, November 2nd, 7pm in the church Youth Building.

This new class will be held on Thursday nights, 7 - 8:30pm, at Shallowford Presbyterian Church at 2375 Shallowford Road, Atlanta GA 30345. A minimum of seven students is required for the class.  

Some rental and sale drums are available for the class. If you need a rental drum to get started with the class, please register early so I can make arrangements to provide a drum for you.   The new six-class series begins on Thursday November 2nd, skips November 23rd for Thanksgiving, and finishes with a final class on Thursday December 14th. We will take six classes to cover all aspects of one piece: break, djembe accompaniments, dunun music, bridge and song.

When you pull into the big parking lot, park close to the main building toward its right side.  The first building you see on the right, most of the way up the walkway that goes up to the steps, is the youth building. 

Some rental and sale drums are available for the class if you need one to get started. **I currently have several really nice drums for sale!** 

Payment: The prices for the class are $90 for the six-week series if registered by October 30th; $105 if you register after October 30th; and $20 drop-in for individual classes.

Payment options: If you don't have a Paypal, Venmo or Zelle account, you can mail a check payable to "Kumandi Drums" to my home address, which I'll send you by email. Or you can call me at 404-966-5800 and give a credit card number. 

For maximum convenience, use these Paypal buttons for registration and drum rental fees.

In the warm months we meet at East Cobb Park on Roswell Road, in the pavilion closest to the road and just behind the kids' playground.  If that pavilion is already taken we move to the smaller pavilion, at the back of the upper parking lot. During the cold months, including November-February, we meet in the Fellowship Hall at Emerson Unitarian Congregation, 4010 Canton Road, Marietta GA 30066. Loaner drums and sale drums available by request made prior to class.
