Some options for djembe classes

5$ discount for registration in more than one group: For exemple, you register to beginner and all level in a 8 weeks class: Get $40 discount.

Unplanned absences: If you are absent for a course during the session, you can take this course in any other group during this session. Ideally, it would be in the same week. The material will probably not be the same but at least you'll be able to play :-)

Absences planned in advance: It is possible to pay only the courses where you will be present, if you indicate at the time of registration. In this case, the cost is $ 22 / 1:30 x the number of courses.
