Team Drumming

Everyone can make music - confidence is built by breaking down the barrier "I haven't got any rhythm". Corporate drumming is creative, confidence building and ultimately triumphant.

Drumming provides an unusual and stimulating experiential learning opportunity for all participants. The playing process itself is both enjoyable and demanding, while the outcome produces a shared feeling of confidence and satisfaction. Drumming bridges the gap between work and play

Brief History of Rhythm & Time

Early tribal man first used group drumming to communicate and strengthen village relationships. Through time, rhythms were then introduced to more social & religious rituals. As civilizations grew, armies used drums & rhythm to focus, motivate & energise.

Rhythm has become more prominent in our lives with each generation.

Today, we are surrounded by rhythms, from the moment we wake up;

morning alarms

rail tracks or radio on the way to work

the beating of windscreen wipers, indicators etc.

music in the lift or while you hold on the phone!

...to the time you get home and watch TV, play your new CD or answer one of your many ring tones, you have subconsciously absorbed countless rhythms. This happens every day of your life...
