Out of respect for the teacher, myself and fellow participants and also for your learning and understanding of the basic techniques taught, it is important to arrive on time. If you miss the beginning it may affect your enjoyment of the learning and the rest of the group’s experience of the session. Our ethos is about working together as a team in a group rhythm so we ask you to be mindful of the part you play in the whole experience.

Your voucher/fee includes drum hire and tea/coffee and biscuits!.

Health and safety

Please remove any rings or hand jewellery to protect you and our drums!

It’s thirsty work so please bring a bottle of water with you and layers that you can take off as you warm up.

Please note we have a one week cancellation policy.

We look forward to drumming with you soon!
