Summary

Ghana Performing Arts Training

Receive state of the art training in multiple West African musical and dance forms, including drumming, Ghanaian xylophone, and other instruments with our Music or Dance Training programs.

You will be working and living at a music center on the outskirts of Accra, the capital city. In addition to small group and one-on-one instruction, you may have the opportunity to lead workshops in music styles from your home country, as well as visit local communities to experience the power of performance in West African culture. The minimum duration for this training program is two weeks, and the maximum will depend on the visa regulations based on your nationality.

 

Become immersed in Ghanaian culture by living at the arts center, and taking excursions to nearby villages

The music & dance center where you will be training was founded over 10 years ago by Bernard Woma, one of the most famous players of the Dagara gyil, a xylophone native to the northwest region of Ghana. You will receive instruction directly from this master musician and dancer himself (when he is at the center and not touring internationally), as well as more than a dozen highly trained experienced dancers from all over Ghana. Guest artists visit frequently to offer courses in batik, tye-dying, kente weaving, drum making, and blacksmithing. The center is also near several historical castles such as the Cape Coast Castle, as well as a number of beautiful Atlantic beaches.

 

“During these three weeks, I learned more about music than I had in three years of University. The experience was not just one of great significance and growth, but one that I cannot wait to repeat!” 

-Fiona Liddell
