This course will be primarily presented by William Dinwoodie, a fantastic player with a life time of learning, and over a year spent in Africa learning with the masters. His unique perspective and approach to the drum will provide a fantastic opportunity for learning and a fresh new approach.

William will be supported by Nathan Bregmen, and Amanda Waugh. Nathan Bregmen has been playing drums for over 20 years, and has been studying African drumming for around 10 years. Captured by the ability of African drumming to build community and bring people together playing music in a short space of time, the African Drum has quickly become Nathans instrument of choice. His light hearted but attentive teaching style has quickly made him a favourite with many students around the country.

A course not to be missed, we will start with the very basics, and over the 6 weeks build to playing as a full African percussion ensemble in a fun, social, supportive environment. Booking is essential, so grab your tickets now!

Benefits of hand drumming Include:
