Who is it for?
This course is for students of all abilities with an interest in rhythm and music.
It is well-known that playing a musical instrument has positive effects on the mind and the body. Because of its intrinsic, rhythmic nature, the drum has a unique way of benefiting those who play it. The activity can help you refine your motor skills by improving the precision, speed and smoothness of your movements, resulting in better hand-eye coordination. Drumming also enhances concentration, promotes better flow of oxygen through deep breathing, reduces stress and anxiety, builds stamina, and helps you ‘be in the now’. When playing drums, you can let go of your worries, sorrow and stress. Drumming with others in a group, strengthens communal bonds and teaches tolerance, as each participant plays the instrument as per his/her comfort and skill. This 4-week course will provide an excellent opportunity to learn how African drumming can benefit you and your own wellbeing, whilst joining others in an enjoyable musical experience.
This 4-week course will meet Fridays on: 24th November and 1st, 8th and 15th December
