Summer Drum Day is on Saturday, June 24th this year!

For those of you who haven't been before it's a fun, outdoor summer workshop combining the 4 workshop groups from Lindfield, Hadlow, Westerham, and Sevenoaks, plus some guests Workshop leaders will be myslef, Tim Richardson, Chris Sylla, providing a mix of easier to learn rhythms and some more tricky rhythms for intermediate drummers. It's not for complete begginers, 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 or Chris. 

What are the details?

Times: From 10.30am start with a warm-up, ending around 4pm. 
Venue: Lindfield Primary Academy, School Lane, Lindfield, W Sussex RH16 2DX

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: rhythms@thedrumcoach.org


Welcome to my website that introduces myself and the drumming I offer. Please have a browse around to find what you need and then contact me for more information.

I mainly cover the East Sussex/West Kent area, but am negotiable. Current workshops are running at: Lindfield, near Haywards Heath, Sevenoaks in Kent, Westerham in Kent, and Hadlow, Kent. Want to sample first? 'Drum taster' (approx 30 mins) to see if you like it! £5 only. 1-1 tuition: if you'd prefer not to be part of a drum workshop and have 1-1 learning time to go at your own pace. Please contact me for a quote and to set up a date when we could meet. The concept behind thedrumcoach is to make funky West African rhythms available to adults and teens in a friendly and fun learning environment. It's a not-for-profit enterprise so contributions go to various good causes and charities in West Africa, mainly in The Gambia.
