Creative Change Drumming Workshops
We’re excited to announce our forthcoming drumming workshops led by professional drummer Mendi Singh. Workshops start on 13 November.
Join us to fine tune your rhythm and drumming techniques. These fun, drumming workshops will spark your imagination. No previous experience is required. As broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Intouch, from an absolute beginner to a skilled percussionist, all are welcome for this ten session (two sessions a month) drumming workshop. Bring a drum, a saucepan, a tin can…the possibilities are endless! We’re going to get creative.
Tabla drummer, Mendi Singh will instruct us through the stages of drumming. At the end of the workshops we will do a drumming presentation at our March 2024 open meeting.
Listen to a promotional audio track about the sessions.

About the workshops
Participants will learn to create music played on everyday objects including tins, bowls, pots, mugs, cans.
Bring some little items from your home to the sessions to create music with a pair of chopsticks that will be provided.
Participants will learn how to play rhythms and record the sounds and create their own digital music. You will receive a copy of the music that you will make at the end of the project.
All participants will perform in a showcase at the end of the project in March.
