Drumming has been shown to have many benefits. It can directly improve mental and physical health. It can relax and energise. It can foster a sense of connection with others. And it’s fun.
Our mission is to bring engaging, accessible and memorable drumming experiences to a diverse range of people within the education and community sectors in Bristol and surrounding areas. From one-off events to regular evening classes, we aim to provide an increasing number of outlets for people to gain hands-on experience of world drumming styles and traditions.
For those wishing to progress further with their drumming skills and experience, we provide regular classes, chances to perform and employment opportunities.
