Have Fara come teach at your local school!
Invite Fara to work with the students in your school. Sharing this powerful music with children is at the heart of our mission. We offer programs from one day to several weeks. While we believe that working with students in relatively small groups provides the richest learning, we can accommodate up to 300 students per day.
Our instructors work with students in many areas of West African percussion and dance. From hand drumming basics to body percussion, musical notation, dance and ensemble drumming, students of all levels are nurtured and challenged.
We custom tailor our programs to meet the specific needs and goals of your school, including many State Educational Standards. One of our many options, includes a student “Showcase Performance”.
