Why African Drumming?

African drumming is both a feel-good activity and a learning tool. Participants finish the session feeling uplifted with a sense of inclusion and the satisfaction of being creative in a positive way.

Group drumming is a popular therapeutic activity within a wide range of organisations: from schools to healthcare providers in both the private and public sectors. It exercises the brain through stimulating cognitive functions like perception, attention and memory and reduces the experience of anxiety, depression and loneliness. Drumming is good for the body too, and not just for psychomotor coordination. Neuroimmunological research shows that drumming in a group significantly boosts cell-mediated immune function, benefiting oncology patients and cancer patients. The most immediate outcome that we encounter is the positive experience of participants who have shared an inclusive social activity and a sense of empowerment.

 

Workshops

A single session workshop is a great activity when you’re looking to bring something original and accessible. Drumming is a great engagement tool and encourages people to come together as a group and share in creating a spontaneous ensemble.

Everyone will have a drum to play and we can bring along shakers and bells to mix it up. We aim to make the workshop as inclusive as possible, giving everyone the chance to have fun and express themselves.

Programmes

Maximise the benefits of group drumming by creating an ongoing group. We recommend a 6 – 10 week programme, culminating in a small student performance at the end. This formula gives enough time to focus on a basic arrangement and also gain a big sense of achievement and pride as well as closure. We provide all of the instruments and our experienced facilitators will help ensure the experience is rewarding for everyone.
