Drumming provides a safe way for people to process their emotions in grief. Feeling and hearing the powerful drumming rhythms creates a strong sense of release, while the sense of social empathy in group drumming allows people to combat a deep sense of isolation often felt with the loss of a loved one...
What do you need if you are a drumming teacher and you wish to provide a banner to teach a group the words to an African song, but want to use the same hands that are holding up the banner to play a backing rhythm on a djembe? Well, you need the new ‘Song Helmet’ of course!
When we were contacted by REL Field Marketing to see if we could provide something light and fun for the afternoon of their annual conference, a Boomwhacker team building session seemed to fit the bill perfectly!
We spent five whole days last week at the Chapel en le Frith primary school. This is a lovely little town in Derbyshire, just on the outskirts of the Peak District, and we had a brilliant time working with the children.
One of our biggest recent corporate drumming events was for the Charter Housing Association in Newport, Wales. This was a fantastic drumming session: it took place in an absolute wonder of a room - a big wide space, just perfect for a drum circle.
At one of our recent corporate events, we asked the participants to describe how they felt before the workshop in three words. We then asked them to use another three words to describe how they felt afterwards. We're thrilled with people's reactions!
Sometimes it happens that a very large drumming session is followed by a much more intimate one! This happened last week, where we had a fantastic drumming session at IdeasX and then went on to a small community centre.
