Tuesday night Beginners/ warm up sessions are back starting 7th April 2015

After a very positive response the Drumroots  African djembe drumming ‘beginners/warm up session’ is back! Every Tuesday night 6.30 pm – 7.30pm  in addition to our regular 7.30pm – 9.30pm drumming class at the Union Chapel Fallowfield. These sessions will be slower paced than the regular class, and more focused on technique which will be ideal for beginners to learn the basics, good for experienced players wishing to further their skills in a more relaxed environment and great for advanced players to have a warm up before the normal class starts.
