Day 1: Students will learn about the instruments they will be playing: Their origins, role in West African cultures, and the three basic tones used to create rhythms played on the drums and how to play them. 

Day 2: Students will recap Day 1 and learn about two traditional West African rhythms, their meanings and how to play them. They will listen to rhythms played by the instructor and will be asked to share their thoughts about them.

Day 3: Students will recap Day 2, learn to play solo and with a group, and use their voices to accompany their drumming, and learn a third traditional West African rhythm.

Day 4: Students will recap Day 3, compose, arrange, and play their own rhythms solo and with the group, and plan performances and rehearse them for a culminating performance.
