Facilitated rhythmical fun with hand drums and percussion instruments

If your heart is beating you are ready to be...rhythmologised !

A drum circle, drumming workshop, junk percussion or massed Boomwhackers will really make your family fun day go with a bang!

Relax, reduce stress, and have fun! Imagine a gathering of people in a circle watching the facilitator for the occasional direction, listening to the other players and feeling the group rhythm develop.

Soon they have moved from being perhaps strangers and beginner drummers to becoming members of a fully functioning percussion ensemble - and some probably thought they had no sense of rhythm!

When you watch our Drumming Workshop video you will see how an Active Rhythmology drumming workshop can work - but we have lots of different activities so please visit the Contact page to find our details and then get in touch.

By the time you have started to discuss how we can help, you will be well on the way to a successful event.

Unlike African drumming or Samba Band where you have to play the part you are told to play, in an Active Rhythmology drum circle the facilitator encourages the players to contribute to the group at their own level and make up their own rhythms as they go along.

You may notice that it is not just about the drumming, but more to do with the group having fun together.

Think of an event with people gathered and there is probably scope for a Community Drum Circle.


The following drum circles are open to the public YES, anyone can turn up and explore their own inner rhythm as they join in with the group. If you need directions please telephone or email.
