A place for teachers to discuss issues to do with teaching

Those vids are very misleading and I had to laugh. I think the problem is the lack of quality djembes around. The difference between proper djembes and toy djembes are.....they are not same instrument, totally different. In a way, those toy djembes are better off being played like those videos. However, if everyone had a great djembes, African hardwood would disappear.... I do agree that if you are meant to learn it, true information will come. I owned one of those toy djembe before and played around bonfire and messed around, but it did not encourage me to practice. When I met a proper teacher and purchased DSD drum from him, it was a beginning of slow realization process of...."oh I see, this is how its done". After that I started to practice daily. I believe a good instrument teaches you how to play. Hope this happens to many more.

I have this "jewel" also, I don't know what bothers me most, the fact that he's got a lot of followers who's think that's the correct way to play a djembe, or the fact thet when you try to tell him, an avalanche of lego drummers comes to defend him...
