What happens during our sessions?
Each participant receives a traditional Djembe drum and is lead by a skilled
facilitator in creating the first building blocks of making music as a group.
There will be interactive games and easy to play rhythms, which lead the group
through the intricacies of making music together.
Each session is about 60minutes long and we can accommodate 10 to 300 delegates
at a time.
Benefits of drumming.
The effects of drumming are well researched an are prized for their beneficial impact on group dynamics. Drumming has many physiological and psychological health benefits such as: Stress reduction – The action of beating a drum in time with one another helps create harmony in the group.
This experience of harmony helps individual participants feel a sense of connection, which in turn supports them in further settling and grounding.
Over time participants forget their worries and find themselves quite naturally in the present- relaxed and mentally refreshed.
Endorphin release – while drumming the brain alters slightly to match the excited fresh breathing patterns and balanced arm movements while playing.
Improved listening & attention – awareness development is key to shifting any blockage from our normal behavior.
In playing musical instruments, we show how our attitudes are formed, through the quality of the sounds produced by the means we apply in playing the instrument. Its purely primal sounds can either be played consciously or unconsciously, but by paying attention to the sounds produced, and to the musical patterns shared amongst the group, we allow a natural ecstatic state to take hold creating a more attentive attitude.
Group cohesion through the creative group process – once we have guided the group in the basics of playing a drum, we allow them time to co-create their music as a whole, and to explore the dynamics of playing a drum and other percussion as well as dancing, helping to form a bond through our playful nature.
