"Yes, Even You Can Master the Djembe In Just 3 Days ... Learn and Remember Any Pattern With Ease - By Watching These Simple, Step-by-Step Video Lessons"
Even if you've never even played at all before, or if you feel like
you don't have a musical bone in your body you can still learn to play
the Djembe in the comfort of your own home with these video lessons.
You'll learn at your own pace, you won't be pressured and you'll be
able to master the skills you need to sound like a professsional in no
time at all....
From the Desk of: Tim Irrgang, Hand Drum Specialist Location: A Beach in Australia on a hot summer night
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
Whenever anyone asks you to play something alone on your drum you just “turn to jelly” and can’t remember what to play
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
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
Learn The Djembe in the way YOU feel most comfortable with these unique video lessons, backed up with written materials and audio tracks
"Improved more in two weeks than in six months...."
"I’m finding Djembe Secrets very helpful
so far. I’ve only had it two weeks but I feel my playing has improved
more in those two weeks than over the last six months!"
Sincerely, Pascal Bullard

"after a couple of hours I had developed a solid foundation…"

more difficult challenges. I found that after a couple of hours I had
developed a solid foundation on which to develop more complex rhythms
and techniques. "
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.
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
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:
Eighteen Video Clips (over 1 hour of video content in total), Starting
with simple tones, and progressing through to Advanced Rhythms and
Four Unique Jam Tracks recorded both with and without the Djembe Part, as well as click tracks to help you keep in time.
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!
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:
Knowing how to keep one rhythm consistent, while a different rhythm is being played
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!
Heres How Easy it is to watch the videos online
If you have seen the sample videos on this website, then you will be able to watch the videos in the members area.
We Provide both streaming video players, or downloadable videos in
mp4 or Windows Media player formats, so that it is accessible to anyone
with an internet connection.
Relevant Notes to each chapter are just a click away
All you have to do is click on the Adobe Acrobat icon to the right
of the screen, and the relevant notes will instantly pop up on the
screen. You can then print them out or simply follow along with the
video on screen

Some Frequently Asked Questions....
How Long will my online membership last?
This is not one of those rip-off schemes that will continually
re-charge your credit card over and over again. For the small
investment in Djembe Secrets you will have Lifetime access* to the product, and we will never charge you again for the same product. ever!
We believe that you should have the right to control your own
learning, and learn a little bit now, and then come back to it in a
years time to learn a little more if you wish. The resource will be here for you
when you need it, and when you have the desire to learn. That is why we
do not place a time limit on your membership of the website.
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!

exact same progam that we used to sell for USD 149, but it is now

convinced them to include the shipping - so for a limited time USD 97 is
all you'll pay, and you'll have this course shipped to your front door!

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

demonstrate on Video during the video lessons. These tracks are
specifically composed for this course, and are typical of the styles of
music played on the Djembe.
