Hand drumming and percussion workshop

November 21 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

- £30
LIMITED TO 20 PARTICIPANTS – TICKETS MUST BE PURCHASED IN ADVANCE VIA TICKETSOURCE.
TICKETS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR.
Full day workshop: This day is a wonderful opportunity for newcomers as well as seasoned hand drum and percussion enthusiasts of all ages to work together on developing their understanding of rhythm and exercise their manual dexterity under the guidance of professional drummer and percussionist Rick Wilson.Rick is an experienced tutor of many years, drawing from his extensive repertoire of Indian, African and South American rhythms, which he makes accessible in astonishingly creative ways whilst providing a joyful and focused learning experience.

The workshop is designed around aspects of percussion such as the sounds of the drum, hand and finger techniques, solid, basic timekeeping, body rhythms, spoken words as a basis of rhythm, call and response rhythms, 2, 3 and 4 part rhythms, as well as a variety of other rhythmic activities that, besides drums, involve the use of bells, gongs, chime bars, shakers and more or less anything else that comes to hand and springs to mind.

The event includes a free vegetarian lunch of homemade soup and bread provided by our hosts Claudia & Barry for all participants to enjoy – a lovely opportunity to socialize safely in a physically-distanced setting and regain strength for the afternoon session! Feel free to bring your own refreshments but please bear in mind that the Methodist Church does not tolerate the consumption of alcohol on their premises.

Instruments: Please bring your own drum and percussion instruments if you have any, but no worries, there will be plenty of instruments at hand! Whatever your experience, plenty or none at all, be sure to bring your enthusiasm – come and make a joyful noise!
