I established a drumming group at school (Blacktown Girls High), & we learned together. “Tribal Drum” became my sounding board for the rhythms & skills I had learned in weekly classes with Michele Marie, John May & Sibo Bangoura.
I am very proud of “Tribal Drum”. We are on an incredible journey together. Our first performance was at a school talent quest after about 6 weeks of playing together, & in November of last year we performed at the West African Festival. So much has changed in 5 years!!
I am now running a weekly drumming class that is part of a Mental Health & Wellbeing program that is organised by Catholic Care, as well as a beginner’s community drumming class on Saturday afternoons. Life is very good!!”
