Drum Workshop

First to sixth class took part in a Drum Nature workshop on Wednesday, October 5th. The boys played and explored different rhythms with many different types of drums. Drumming is a great way to relax, to have fun and to connect with others. The aim of DRUM NATURE is to use rhythm-based events to bring people together and to create a positive outlet for creativity, energy and self-expression. Drumming is a very accessible activity and even a group of beginners can create an up-lifting rhythm in a matter of minutes.

A drum circle is what happens when any number of people get together to create rhythm. No previous experience is necessary and no preceived ability is required; the drum circle accommodates everyone.

Using drums and percussion the participants together create a unique in-the-moment rhythm consisting of everyone's individual contribution. A facilitator will assist this process but ultimately the music is made by the participants. Drum circles are about community, creativity and fun.
