Level Appraisement System

Preserve Tradition

In Mandingue, even a master djembefola had to be tested and his work examined before being considered a master drummer.

In the ways of tradition, our level appraisement system serves as a chartered direction for effective learning.

Like a Lesson

More than just a test, our appraisal process serves as a one on one lesson for certified teachers to focus on individual’s strength and weakness, which otherwise would not be possible in the usual group classes.

Lay the Foundation

The abilities required in each level of rhythms lays the foundation required for the next level, this system thus creates an ideal learning path and a productive way of tracking one’s progress. This system is the result of years of teaching and experimenting within TTM and has proven both practical and effective in learning traditional djembe rhythms and technique.
