HeartBeat Community workshops are fun, dynamic and creative!


I use a wide variety of musical games and activities to make learning fun and enjoyable. Extra focus is placed on expression of creativity, listening to one another and enjoying the music making process. Each child will be able to play with a wide variety of drums and percussion instruments from around the world whilst also gaining the many benefits that playing together can have.


Top 3 benefits of drumming workshops for school children

  1. Research has proven that drumming in a group helps children build self-control, self-esteem, respect, empathy and tolerance for others. Plus, it’s heaps of fun!

  2. Drumming helps develop listening skills, coordination, cooperation and patience.

  3. It gives students a sense of competence that raises self-esteem and confidence.


I can offer flexible Drum Circle music workshops with options including:

  1. One-off workshop (45-90 minutes)*

  2. A series of workshops  throughout a half or a whole day (45–60 minutes each)*

  3. Term-based programs (Once a week for 6–10 weeks) with options to end in an open drum circle event*

*Can be customised to fit the music curriculum requirments or programme needs
