I studied African Drumming and Dance with Paschal Yao Younge while obtaining
my Master's degree from the World Music Center at West Virginia University.
In that time, I travelled to Ghana, West Africa, and participated in village
tours and classes at the University of Ghana, Legon. Owning over 40 African
instruments, including drums, bells, rattles, and flutes, I teach the
drumming, dance, and songs of many West African dances. Plus djembe.
