Drum 'taster' sessions on alternate Wednesdays in Church Stretton and Ludlow (see Calendar for dates)
I’m running a ‘taster’ West African drumming session for adult beginners in Church Stretton & Ludlow on alternate Wednesdays. Have a free sample for 15 minutes at the Silvester Horne Institute, Ch Stretton or Womens Centre, Ludlow. Session starts at midday (CS) or 11.30am and 12.45 (Ludlow). If you like it, stay on for another half hour for £7.
Book here: firstname.lastname@example.org
If people like it they can join a rolling workshop series for £7 per session inc drum hire/£6 if you have your won drum. Lots of basics to learn first, then the level will get progressively harder so good drummers will have ‘stretchy’ patterns to learn and play!
Taster drum session for visitors at Eaton Manor!
Something different for Eaton Manor guests and visitors to try...I'm running a taster session staff to experience West African drum rhythms, but make them easy to access - even for people with no drumming experience at all.
It's a great mindful experience to play funky rhythms that sound great in an outdoor or indoor setting!

Summer Drum Day - a 1 day drum experience (dates & location tba)
I's a fun, outdoor summer workshop featuring a mix of easier to learn rhythms and some more tricky rhythms for intermediate drummers. It's not for complete beginners, so if in doubt about your level of playing do ask me!
What's the drumming day all about?
We will play some new extended rhythms to stretch you a little and to learn to play in a bigger ensemble. No 'walk of shame' drum solos (unless you want to!).
We will major on djembe playing of course, but we will also play dun-duns so we can have some fun playing the 'bass parts' too. This workshop is not for complete beginners so only pass on invite friends or family if they're more experienced to at least 'improver' or 'intermediate' level. If in doubt ask me.
What are the details?
Times: From 10.30am start with a warm-up, ending around 4pm. Bring a picnic lunch to share!
Venue & location: local venue tbc
Cost: £25 for early bird bookings; £30 after that. Djembe hire for the day costs £2.00
What do I need to do now?
Please email to enquire or to book a place: email@example.com
I will be making a contribution to my various African charities/good causes after the workshop.
I look forward to hitting the skin with you soon! Come and join in...
Corporate team building workshops
I also run workshops for corporate teams and groups either on-site or at a nearby external venue - a great way to bring the team together using rhythm to connect members to take collective responsibility, and fun!
As a trained facilitator, I can bring out the key issues the team need to face and work through using music as the medium. I have some excellent and skilled colleagues who can help me with larger groups or events.
