What is Different Drum?

‘Different Drum’ is a different, unique and hands-on ‘event’ that gives a chance for people of all ages to have a musical (and rhythmic) experience and share the wonder of playing percussive music together.

It is an interactive and accessible opportunity for self-expression based around a group-drumming workshop commonly called a drum circle - that brings people together of all ages, genders and cultures to share, learn, explore and discover the power of rhythm.

What happens in Different Drum?

A facilitator* enables everyone to express themselves through playing hand drums and percussion instruments in a drum circle, a relaxed yet structured environment. A drum circle is a percussion orchestra – creating music there and then.

Who will facilitate?

*Steve Cooper - an experienced musician with over 30 years involvement in music. I have played in Folk, Jazz, Blues and Rock bands, Musicals, Choirs, Marching Bands and Orchestras, playing Drums and Percussion. I also have 20 years experience working with children and young people in the voluntary and statutory sector.

Where can it take place?

Almost any setting including music clubs, youth clubs, work places etc.

What about instruments?

A variety of hand drums and percussion instruments from around the world will be provided.
**Thank you to Green Hills Christian Trust and Rosca Trust for continuing to provide funding towards the purchase of instruments.**

"Rhythm is the soul of life because the whole universe revolves around rhythm, and when we get out of rhythm, that’s when we get into trouble. For this reason the drum, next to the human voice, is our most important instrument. It is special."
