Drumdee Group structure…

Posted on 25th January 2018

Drumdee meets weekly at 1pm on Tuesdays in Douglas Community Centre. The chairs are set in a circle and the available drums are in the middle. When individuals have selected their drum the session begins…

Sessions usually begin with an ice-breaking game, which seems to have the benefit of creating an inclusive atmosphere where other problems etc. can be put aside for a short while. This is then followed by playing familiar rhythms or learning a new one.  Sometimes it also involves a lesson about drum rudiments or musical terms. The 2 hour session has a short break at 2pm for tea, coffee, juice etc.  Then resumes as before until 3pm.
