Hands-on Cultural Learning Experiences

Workshop & Clinics

Discover the rhythm of Ghana through intensive music training and a journey around the country to rainforests, national parks, ancient cities, transatlantic slave trade castles, beaches, and markets

Sankofamusicimmersion offers innovative, hands-on cultural learning experiences for colleges and universities at both the undergraduate and graduate level. We can tailor African drumming workshops and masterclasses for university percussion ensembles and other musical groups, as well as for classes and student clubs with no drumming or musical experience.


For schools interested in a more in-depth experience for students, we can work collaboratively to create a semester-long African drumming ensemble and lecture course for credit, including:

  • curriculum design, development and implementation
  • ensemble recruitment and auditions
  • detailed assessment rubrics
  • instrument procurement
  • concert programming and campus community events

Study Abroad Programs

In addition to our open-enrollment study abroad program in the African nation of Ghana, we offer exclusive school programs in Ghana for both faculty and students. We can work with stakeholders at the school to create a unique Ghanaian cultural immersion experience, one that is mission-aligned and fits with existing curricular goals.
