    ”Simon, I want to express my gratitude for connecting me with Weezy. Not only did I advance my drums skills in leaps and bounds – but it was also a personally transformative experience. Weezy is a truly gifted teacher. The community at Nungua is great. I just could not have had a better experience.”

    “I loved the structured drumming program and being in a tight group with people at the same level. From the first lesson I felt encouraged to learn on the edge of my capacity, make mistakes and bond with the group. I came with an intention of expanding my rhythm and solo repertoire and a now feel so much more confident as a drummer. The calibre of teachers in the local Ghanaian tradition and the Djembe masters from Burkina was the perfect balance.”
