Some benefits;

  • Develops key musical principles of timing, dynamics, improvisation and listening.
  • Great way to experience playing in a group without having to spend years practising!
  • Easy techniques to learn, so you get going straight away.

In the lessons you'll play traditional West African drums such as Djembes, Djun Djuns and a variety of bells and shakers, but you might try using anything that makes a good sound, junk, body percussion etc.

You'll learn a mix of set pieces, learn exercises for technique and timing and ideas for improvisation and having a jam!

At all of our classes drums are available for you to use (with prior booking), although you may wish to bring your own if you have one that is suitable.

"Joe runs a weekly drumming club at our school, for pupils across all year groups. He comes with great knowledge and expertise, and a way of working with pupils that engages and encourages them. He is a pleasure to work with, and always delivers sessions of a very high quality. It is clear that Joe clearly genuinely enjoys what he does, and this means that our pupils enjoy the sessions too! I'd happily recommend him to anyone looking for a workshop or club leader."
