Facilitator: Nancy Brauhn-Curnes

Nancy began playing the djembe more than 10 years ago during her career as a special education teacher. She quickly expanded, creating an all-school drumming program that served 250 students annually—INCLUDING students with special needs! The success of the school program motivated Nancy to create Djembe Jive, LLC.

Nancy weaves her 38 years of teaching into the drumming classes and workshops she offers to children, youth and adults. She is a Village Music Circle Certified Drum Circle Facilitator, a member of the Drum Circle Facilitation Guild and one of the  selected participants in the America’s “Train The Trainers” program taught by world-renowned Arthur Hull of Village Music Circles. Nancy will complete this certification program in early 2020.
