Workshops for Health Care

Drumming can have many health and well-being benefits for both mind and body – which is why we work closely with the Care and Health sectors, running both drumming and dance workshops for a range of individuals, patients and groups – especially those with disabilities or special needs. For special needs groups, we actively encourage everyone to participate as much as they are able – but at the same time, we identify those individuals who will benefit from higher levels of one-to-one tuition,and work with them in accordance with their capabilities and needs. For sessions with those who havea lower potential for participation, we conduct a more performance- focused session in which we involve and communicate with individuals at a level which matches their capabilities.

In all our care and health drumming and dance workshop activities, we consistently receive positive feedback from nursing staff, carers, family and others who know well the personalities, response levels and communication skills of participants; observers frequently report rewardingly high levels of engagement, response and activity from our drumming workshop attendees.

Center Parks

"We had a really enjoyable day with Drumroots. The facilitators built a good rapport with the young people and were happy to work flexibly around their needs. The teaching was quick and easy to follow. The final performance with all the staff joining in was high- energy and a great way to round off the day. Thanks so much!".

"The group enjoyed the content and structure of the workshop, and had a lot of fun. Their only complaint is that it should have been longer! I especially appreciate that you tailored the workshop to suit our group and budget".
