This course is for students of all abilities with an interest in rhythm and music.
Drumming benefits the mind and the body. Drumming refines motor skills and improves coordination, it enhances concentration, promotes oxygen flow through deep breathing, reduces stress and anxiety, builds stamina, and helps relieve tension. When playing drums, you can let go of your worries, sorrow and stress. Drumming in a group strengthens communal bonds and teaches tolerance, as each participant plays the instrument at their own level of comfort and skill. We are offering two drumming courses: a 4-week course offers an introduction to practice and learn several djembe drumming rhythms and beats. A second, longer, 6-week course welcomes beginners, as well as drummers who attended the first session or anyone who wishes to develop and practice their skills, working towards a final piece. A third informal progression workshop will meet in February to explore moving on as a peer-led djembe drumming group with the aim of becoming more self-sustaining and independent. Students enrolling on this workshop do not need to have attended previous courses to participate in these progression sessions!
This 4-week course will meet Tuesdays on: 26th March, 2nd, 9th and 16th April
