INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COURSES

The GAMC International Students

We offer courses in:

  • Kora
  • Balafon
  • Drumming (Djimbe / Mandinka Drums / Dundun)
  • Dance

Lessons are held on our school campus, and are between the hours of 10am and 4pm.  Depending on which course you select, you can study up to 6 hours in a single day. If you book your course during our Term time there is the choice of also joining some of the Junior student classes to get a feel of playing in an ensemble. 


Courses can be booked for a single person, or for up to 10 students in one class. 


We do not currently offer accommodation to International students, however we can facilitate accommodation for you at a guest house less than a 1 minute walk from the school at a discounted rate. Alternatively, we are a 10 minute drive form all the popular hotels located in Senegambia and Kololi should you wish to make your own hotel booking.
