Off Beat Drumming Workshops

Back to Activities

Off Beat Workshops provide fun, interactive, and inclusive drumming workshops for groups of all ages. Playing drums as part of a group can have radical results on the physical and emotional wellbeing of participants, and strengthen connections that extend far beyond the session.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • group drumming is as physical a workout as you make it; as such it can burn calories, improve circulation and cardio function, and even lower blood pressure;
  • it can lower stress and improve mood;
  • it can strengthen connection and cohesion between group members.

“Laura is a brilliant workshop leader! Really fun and inclusive sessions with lots of patience and help for those who are new to drumming.100% recommend you book Off Beat Workshops. I’d defo do it again!” – Workshop Participant

Here’s an explanation of who Off Beat are, and what a workshop can feel like:

Laura is the lead workshop facilitator and there may be additional facilitators, depending on the group size.

Wear something comfortable and bring a drink as drumming can be as physical as you want it to be!
