Immerse yourself in a large pool of percussion (and other!) instruments and experiment with techniques of spontaneous composition and improvisation to develop listening, beat-counting and non-verbal communication skills – no experience needed! All instruments provided.

Percussion isn’t just about drums! Join Andreas from "Team Drum" in a unique musical experience in a huge, funky space with amazing acoustics, filled with all kinds of instruments that even beginners can play.

From timbales to bar chimes, choose from hundreds of instruments and make wonderful music and sounds as you develop your musical, listening, beat-counting and non-verbal communication skills. Great for those with some musical experience who want to be taken somewhere further by the process and by Andreas and also for novices to discover their musical talents in a supportive group environment.

- Met and explored a wide range of percussion, and other, instruments
- Learned some basic playing techniques
- Been able to understand basic principles of group improvisation
- Begun to use your basic knowledge of tempo, time-signature, volume and musical form as part of the jams
