Who is it for?
This course is for students of all abilities with an interest in rhythm and music, with an option of developing their drumming skills for performance.
Drumming benefits the mind and the body. Drumming refines motor skills and improves coordination, it enhances concentration, promotes oxygen ow 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 comfort and skill. We are offering two drumming sessions: 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 wish to develop and practice their skills, leading to an optional performance and Saturday performance preparation workshop.
This longer 6-week course will meet Fridays on: 18th, 25th May, 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd June with an optional performance practice workshop on: Saturday 30th June. Date of optional performance TBC
