COMMUNITY

Music is a powerful uniting force. We harness the power of rhythm to connect individuals and communities in a fun and unique manner.

Kids Classes

These classes are tailored for children aged 6-12yrs. Drumming is a great way for children to explore musicality, keep physically active, develop cognitive skills, connect socially and build confidence. Plus, it’s just heaps of fun! Contact us for more information.

Festivals, markets & community events

We can bring the Groove to your event! Our drumming community is keen to share our love for rhythm. We specialise in facilitating community drumming jams, where rhythms are led by our drumming community and everyone is invited to join the fun. Additional drums and shakers are provided to encourage involvement from as many people as possible. We also run tailored, on-demand workshops.
