Dun Dun Class – 4 Wks w/Benjie

Starts 5.30pm to 6.30pm

From Monday 25th May 2020

Beginners to Intermediate

These big base drums are as close as the African’s get to the massive drums of the Japanese Taiko. It’s like riding a Harley Davidson while beating the drum. The Dun Dun’s can be heard four kilometres away and provide a powerful form of primal communication.

Come and get familiar with these drums or extend yourself if you’re intermediate.

We’ll be working with traditional and African inspired rhythms.

IF you don’t have drums, all you need is a set of drum sticks and something to hit.

This is a fun and inclusive class and we’ll be including the therapeutic nature of drumming for personal or group empowerment.

Not familiar with online classes or how to do it? Please contact us and we can help you get connected!

TESTIMONIALS – What People Say:
 
“Wow, wow, wow. Just home from a Drumming class.
 
I’d have to say that Benjie is the most genuine, patient and enlightened individual I’ve met in a long time. I think it’s fair to say that I’m the worst and most ‘unco’ drummer he has had to date, yet he was patient and offered genuine support.
 
If you’re looking for something fun, inclusive and different, give it a go. You won’t be sorry. “
– Vicki Childs
