My wife and have I been running Drum Workshops for Guiding and Scouting groups and their camps for several years now and are writing in the hope that you might like to book us for events or visits.
Rhythmicity has been operating for 20 years, running workshops in pretty much any setting available: Schools, businesses, Churches, Scout, Brownie and Guide groups, people with learning disabilities, older people, festivals, processions – even weddings (my own!) and a funeral!
We bring all the equipment to your venue, and everyone has an instrument throughout the workshop. We also like to swap the instruments around so everyone gets chance to play more than one.
Our main aim is always that participants should have fun, and there’s always a strong theme of working together.
For camp work we offer our Drum Circle workshop which can be tailored to suit your programme in length. For group visits we have several different workshops, including Drum Circle, to offer:
Sammy the Spider – Geared for Rainbows aged children – We have a selection of soft toys and through rhythm, tell the story of Sammy, the Spider who has no friends. The children get to participate, interacting through the journey of discovery as Sammy makes some rather special friends.
Drum Circle – A Drum Circle is always a unique team working experience: the participants improvise their own rhythms; the facilitator works with this to draw out the best. Together, the group provides a level of musical sophistication which always surprises!
African Celebration – Children learn techniques and rhythms to accompany a traditional African song. They will also learn a little about the role of the Master Drummer and how rhythm fits into African culture.
The cost really does depend on the number of participants, and the amount of time that you would like us to be with you. Our normal charging rate is based on £2.50 per child plus a contribution towards our travel costs. We have special day rates for any District Camp / Jamboree work that you might like us to do. Our prices can be negotiable, as we do work on an honesty basis and understand that times are hard and budgets are stretched. So please do feel free to be honest with us about cost. If you are interested to know more then please do get in touch, also letting us know the numbers of children you envisage attending and we will give you an idea as to the cost implication.
I hope the above is helpful, and I hope to hear from you soon.
With kind regards and thanks
