Drum 'taster' sessions during Church Stretton festival on Wed, 11th August, 2021
I’m running a ‘taster’ West African drumming session for adult beginners during Church Stretton’s summer festival, on Wed Aug 11th. It’s a community event, so free, at the Silvester Horne Institute. Session 1 starts at 10.45am; session 2 at 11.30am - 30 minutes each session.
Book here: firstname.lastname@example.org
If people like it, I hope to run a 4 workshop series starting in late August, at £5 per session. Level will get progressively harder, so good drummers will have ‘stretchy’ patterns to learn and play!
Taster drum session for staff 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 run during the summer (dates tba)
Tt'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 'walks 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: tbc
Cost: £25 for early bird bookings until July 14th; £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.
Please email me to enquire about rates and dates, and to say more about what you need: firstname.lastname@example.org
