Equipment required, Practice Pads and drum sticks/aprox.£15-00

The group is organised to introduce people with no experience
of drumming, but with a desire to learn about the art of percussion,into a situation where they can learn to drum.Starting with some basic rudiments on a practice pad they will hopefully progress to a snare drum and then on to a percussion ensemble to perform in public. In the meantime the idea is to have some fun drumming along to music and developing a feel for the ''groove''.

The group is located in S10 at my home in Lodge Moor where we can play virtually any form of recording from audio tapes, through gramophone records (excepting 78s), Video Tapes, CDs, DVDs, Blu-Ray disks as well as YouTube, which we make extensive use of. We meet every second Tuesday of the month. At present we are going through Jazz recordings of each year and are about to enter the 1950’s. We have a very good range of jazz recordings and reference books as background information. Easy access.
