Dear Friend,

Whether you dream of being able to lead a Djembe Drumming circle, or just impressing your friends with your awesome drumming skills….

… this page shows you how to play the Djembe in a fraction of the time that you’d take to learn the traditional way of going to group classes or learning with a teacher.

In just a few days you can be playing the Djembe and producing the exact sounds that professionals get from their drums.

Imagine it – Today you’ve got absolutely no idea what rhythm to play on the drum… and next month you’re amazing passers-by with your skills and you’ve got a whole library of rhythms in your head that you can recall as needed.

If you are like most people trying to learn the Djembe...

You just can’t get those clean and crisp sounds from your drum, particularly the awesome “slap tone” that the professionals can get

You feel embarrassed playing your Djembe in public because you never practice at home and feel you never get any better

You feel intimidated with all the complicated sounding names of instruments and rhythms, and you don’t feel like you could ever achieve them

Whenever anyone asks you to play something alone on your drum you just “turn to jelly” and can’t remember what to play
Tim Irrgang playing Djembe from Djembe Secrets

My Name is Tim Irrgang, and I'm a professional percussionist. I've played in loads of bands, and I'm highly in demand as a session musician playing all types of percussion and hand drums.

You are about to discover how I’ve helped hundreds of people who were afraid to even touch their djembe into accomplished drummers who can confidently play in front of people with ease.

You know how it works.... you can play in a group - but you always follow someone else’s pattern, and when you get home and someone asks you to play the drum you just “turn to jelly” and can’t remember a good pattern to play.

People who can seem to “play really well” are not special, they have no hidden “talent” – they just have a simple secret. The secret is so effective they can always call upon great sounding patterns really quickly.

The secret is this: they learned in a way that suited them, and not other people!

If you learn in the way that suits you, your brain will naturally remember things more quickly. If you are an analytic or mathematical learner, then you will always remember things that you have learned in this manner. Similarly if you are an aural or visual learner, you'll remember things that you learned by hearing or seeing respectively.

That is why I put together this package of learning materials – it allows you to learn in your own style

So What is Djembe Secrets?

Djembe Secrets is a complete online learning System that puts YOU in control of your own skills. You are going to completely understand and enjoy playing the Djembe by yourself and in groups.

Djembe Basics

In Djembe Basics you will quickly and easily learn the skills you need to sound fantastic on the Djembe.

We will explore the basic sounds on the djembe, and you will see in detail all the hand positions that are used. If you think that it is just luck that some people can get great sounding rhythms and beats then think again - it is just down to their good sound production!

I will also give you some step by step instructions on some great sounding patterns. I know that not all students will need to learn quite so slowly, and that is what is really great about learning online - you can skip through the pages that are too simple for you OR watch as many times as you need as I slowly and carefully explain the first rhythms.

Pretty quickly I move on to some more advanced patterns, where you will learn some really cool and funky beats that will both impress your friends and colleagues, and provide you with enjoyable and therapeutic rhythms to play alone.

In Djembe Basics you will learn everything you need, and nothing you don't. I use very accessible language and I don't use complicated terminology or names for the rhythms. You simply watch and Learn

Djembe Basics includes:

Djembe Secrets Includes Eighteen Video Clips (over 1 hour of video content in total), Starting with simple tones, and progressing through to Advanced Rhythms and Variations
Djembe Secrets Includes Four Unique Jam Tracks recorded both with and without the Djembe Part, as well as click tracks to help you keep in time.
Djembe Secrets Includes Comprehensive notes for every chapter, with unique "easy read" notation system to make it clear, even if you can't read a note of music!
Advanced Djembe

In Advanced Djembe you will build on the skills you developed in Djembe Basics, mainly in the area of ensemble playing.

The Djembe is a drum which is rarely played alone. For this reason I decided to create 40 minutes of extra material which would help my students with their ensemble playing.

Because these videos cover all of these tricky concepts you will be able to go to a drum group with renewed confidence, knowing that you will have all the ensemble skills you need


There are two main problems that are very common in drumming:

Djembe Secrets Includes Knowing how to keep one rhythm consistent, while a different rhythm is being played
Djembe Secrets Includes Knowing how to follow a leader and knowing when to start and stop in a group situation

Utilising Split Screen and Multi-tracking technology I have been able to record multiple performances at the one time, so that you can see how the rhythms interlock and weave together - just check out the range of screen shots below!

Can I get the course on DVD?

Absolutely! We origionally had this course available on a DVD pack with a book which sold for USD 149 - and when these packs all sold out we had it only available as the online course. We've now made the DVDs available again, with instant access AS WELL! You can get started immediately, and then when the DVDs arrive in your mailbox you'll be able to watch them on your TV instead of your computer screen!

Djembe Secrets DVD set

  • Audio CD - Containing All Jam Tracks plus ensemble patterns

And yes... these DVDs are region free so they play on DVD players anywhere around the world!

How much does it cost, and how can I pay?

If you want to learn in private lessons, then you can expect to pay at least USD 50 per hour. However this could be "hit and miss" as you won't know whether you will connect with the teacher, and you have much less control over your own learning. If you invest in private lessons for an entire year then it is likely to cost you at least USD 1500

Private lessons don't give you anywhere near the amount of in-depth content that you have access to in Djembe Secrets, and you have access to it 24/7, 365 Days of the year, and it will cost you less than a hundred dollars.

With Djembe Secrets you can have access to the complete course of instruction, helping you develop all the skills you need for just USD 69 for the online version, or USD 97 for the DVD pack.
