We offer inspirational African drumming workshops for schools, businesses, charities and one-off events.
African drumming workshops can be incredibly beneficial for people of all ages. Taking part in our workshops is engaging, confidence-building, stress-relieving and helps to promote group awareness. Participants get to improve their listening skills, sense of rhythm, co-ordination, self-discipline, creative expression and self-confidence while providing great fun and togetherness!

Workshops for schools
Our tutors have a wealth of experience working in primary and secondary schools all over London. We believe this experience sets us apart from others offering similar workshops.
Having detailed knowledge of the National Music Curriculum allows our tutors to provide all the key elements of the curriculum, while we can also offer a complete break from everyday school-life by departing from the curriculum entirely!
In contrast to formal western styles of musical learning, African music is traditionally taught aurally. Consequently, the skills acquired from learning music in this way are quite unique and vital for children and adults alike.
“Many thanks for a fantastic morning. The pupils were extremely happy and very positive about the sessions. “
