I want to clarify that if you want to buy the videos you can. The vast majority of the time Philippe Brun gives a real balafon lesson without speaking, the language will therefore not be a problem and you will be able to learn the songs without problems.

Customer reviews

"After desperately looking for a teacher from home, I (certainly like you) decided to learn the balafon alone using videos found on the internet. Unfortunately, these videos, often played by virtuoso African balafonists, are not really suitable for people who are starting the instrument (too high speed, too complex rhythm, video more demonstrative than educational, ...). And then in early January, I came across Philippe Brun's site. And there, oh miracle, I finally found what I was looking for: • clear and educational videos • rhythms that sound good • rhythms simple enough not to have (too) a headache • enough rhythms to allow you to hold a whole song when you play with others.   And in addition, Philippe is passionate about the instrument and it shows.   Therefore you’ll understand, go ahead with your eyes closed.

"If you came across this site, you are really lucky.

Between the fact of:

- find a teacher (you have to do a few kilometers ..)

- that he is an educator,

- that he would like to share a complete piece that he struggled to learn (often you will learn accompaniment and you will wait the following year to learn the second)

So bunch of little guys you will avoid all these annoyances in one click; I'm jealous .

Of course what I clicked and it's great. And if you don't have too much network in your campaign (as it was ... Benjamin finds a solution) ...

Maybe more in an internship ... ".
