African music is about coming together as a community to create something magical!  This class is a fun opportunity for ALL skill levels to learn a song on giant hand-built African marimbas (wooden xylophones).

Have you always wanted to be in a band?  Do you love the community spirit and joyful high-vibration embodied in African music?  This class is for you!   Whether you're a absolute beginner who thinks they have "no rhythm" or a seasoned musician, we promise you'll be playing music with your bandmates within 5 minutes guaranteed! 


Joel Laviolette has over 20 years of experience playing and teaching Zimbabwean music around the world. His marimba students have gone on to play in bands featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live and at the Austin City Limits Festival.
