Paul’s Drumming Workshop- Brilliant !!

Paul recently visited our group to make 27 drums from supplied bicycle wheels and then teach us how to use them as a Samba band

I couldn’t believe how quickly this happened. In about 90 minutes the drums were made and we were producing great rhythms together.

Huge amount of smiling faces, it was great fun and interesting
Well done Paul!
Thank you!
Highly recommended!

A fun filled hour

So I attended a Cardio Drumming Class not knowing at all what to expect. The past year I'd suffered from acute pain and many aches as a result of a form of osteoarthritis in my neck.  Being in pain I'd lost some confidence in carrying out any form of exercise but on the road to recovery, I knew I needed to get back into exercise and back into a happy frame of mind; saw the advert for Cardio Drumming and said to myself ' that looks like fun'.  And yes, it was fun!  So much so I went back week after week - it has brought the smile back to my face!  Paul's enthusiasm and energy is infectious, you can work as hard or as gentle as you like, there's no right or wrong and it's therapeutic.  You don't have to be athletic or have a natural musical ability, the emphasis is on movement and sound.  Banging a drum releases so much tension you build up on a day to day basis, the rhythms relax you and you also get a workout for your brain. But here's the clever thing...you don't feel like you're exercising, it's like your inner child comes out and you're playing and laughing for an hour in a safe environment before you walk back out into the world.  I'm so glad I took that step to go to that first class. Monika's relaxation sessions at the end are fabulous to just steady and ground your mind and thoughts.  Honestly, everyone should give Paul and Monika's sessions a try

This is a really fun way to get fit, have fun and learn something new all at the same time. You don't have to be naturally musical the lessons are taught in such a way that anyone can follow the routine and take part. Give it a go.

My Happy Hour

I look forward to Saturdays and the chance to have fun and exercise while learning about rhythms and drumming. The classes are about playing - with sounds and energy and are suitable for everyone of all ages. Paul’s informal style is charming and his ability to adapt the class to suit the people attending is really thoughtful. Monika’s sessions are pure relaxation. Thank you both.

Anyone can do it

I had so much fun and was stretched as much or as little as was comfortable. I am 66 with an arthritic ankle so if I can do it so can you.

Cardio drumming

I absolutely love coming to the cardio drumming sessions.  Paul has such enfusiasm, which is infectious.  It's a fabulous workout, and you don't even realize that you are exercising.  No one takes themselves seriously, you laugh every week, leading to plenty of endorphins going round your body. I wish I had started this years ago.  I may not of been so tense and stressed, if I had.  Monika is absolutely fabulous, with her mindfulness sessions.  She has such a calming aura and you come away feeling totally grounded and 'zenned' out!  Everyone should have a Paul and Monika in their life!
