Participation in a group drumming workshop or circle, whether learning or jamming.
Drumming offers the opportunity to get in touch with a traditional percussion instrument, or otherwise to engage with kindred spirits playing together in groups of up to as many as 3 000 people, depending on the location. Newbies signing up to learn drumming can expect to be shown basic techniques, and be guided by a facilitator.
Drumming varies culturally, as do drums, whether stand-alone or hand-held. Circles can expect a principal drummer directing the rhythm to create a unified sound. Some forms focus on music and/or a specific culture, while others can be more specialised, for example drumming for its healing properties.
Percussion buffs, musos, music lovers and the culturally curious.
To use a beater, some drums are hand played.
