2020-2021 was different, for lots of reasons....from covid lockdowns that saw the majority of schools & business close their doors and the music stopped...... :-(
Then, brighter days returned with the introduction of vaccines, schools/businesses slowly reopened and we could meet in groups again, albeit socially distanced.
SCHOOL WORKSHOPS (PRIMARY & SECONDARY)
We are so grateful that we got to visit many schools countrywide this school term. The last number of months in particular have been so busy with traveling from Tipperary to Cavan, Dublin, Wexford, Cork, Offaly and everywhere in between. TY's (Transition Students) were so much fun to work with. We introduced them to drumming and percussion, the instruments, dynamics, play and respond, the rumble, body percussion, body beats and so much fun was had.
Likewise, primary school children countrywide engaged in learning all about drumming & percussion. Drumming offers children the opportunity to build confidence in playing music, understanding rhythms, rudiments, patterns, dynamics and so much more. It is a gateway to greater things.
Thank you to all the schools who asked us to facilitate workshops across Ireland this year. We had so much fun doing what we love and sharing our knowledge with all the students.
BUSINESS / CORPORATE WORKSHOPS
Businesses in Ireland, especially now after long periods of remote working, want to bring their teams together. To find fun ways of team building, stress relief, enhancing staff wellbeing and all the other benefits that comes with drumming & percussion. We really enjoy getting these groups interacting and working in TEAMs and have fun doing it!
So onwards towards the summer months where will be hosting some public workshops. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages for more information.
