No previous musical knowledge is needed to participate, just natural youthful enthusiasm and in no time at all Tom Harding will have your students working together and sounding great as they beat out great rhythms.
While totally enjoying playing music together, participants learn the benefits of co-operation and teamwork and discover the awesome sounds that can be achieved when small groups work together as parts of a larger ensemble.
All Hands on Drums is a great way to get a group of young people working together. It may be held during the school day or offered as an extra-curricular activity. All Hands on Drums is also ideal as an OOSH holiday activity, as a one off workshop or as a series of daily workshops spread over the holiday period.
Be aware, at the end of the workshop your students will be keen to perform.
