African Drumming Workshop | Sydney

First responder families, get ready to get your groove on! Hand drumming is the beginning of music. Djembe is the classic West African drum and you’ll start with the basics, building up to a polyrhythm before long. Your instructor has lead drumming workshops for over 20 years in seven countries, so you’ll be amazed how soon you’ll be playing some hypnotic beats!

This Fortem activity can help improve self-esteem and contribution to self-identity through mental and physical stimulation provided by playing an instrument. Drumming can be a mindful activity, allowing you to be ‘in the moment’ while learning something new and achieving a sense of accomplishment. It’s also a great way to connect and socialise with other local first responders, to boost your social well-being by broadening social networks and range of relationships with others in the wider community.

This activity is free for first responder families. Suitable for adults and teens (minimum age 16). Fortem is currently monitoring COVID guidelines closely and may reschedule this event and notify participants accordingly.
