Drumming with drumNorwich in Norwich
drumNorwich offers group drumming opportunities such as drum circles, therapeutic drumming evenings or facilitating other group drumming sessions in Norwich and Norfolk. My focus is on the therapeutic experience of drumming, not the technique - no judgements of you or your drum are made!
Group drumming is powerful, therapeutic and fun. It's also social, inclusive and a global language - breaking down barriers of age, gender, hierarchy, culture and language. You don't need any talent, aptitude or musical ability – we all have a beat within us having spent nine months only six inches away from our mother's heartbeat! When you are drumming you are in the moment, which helps release the stress of holding onto the past or worrying about the future.
All drums of any type or size and percussion are welcome and it's lovely to have an international drum feel! Eg. bongos, frame, djembes, rattles, hang, shamanic, tambourines, dundun, egg shakers, tablas, hand drum etc. No experience is necessary and everyone is welcome - there is wheelchair access at the venue. We end our drum circles with a cuppa - a herbal tea is included.
Our friendly and informal drum circles are held at the Manor Rooms usually on a Monday evening, once a month and are for adults. Bring any drum or percussion instrument with you or complete the booking form to reserve one for free. Drum circles cost £8 per person (please bring correct cash if possible) and if booked over 24 hours in advance, you pay £7 online. You are welcome to get in touch should you have any questions.
I attended one of Chloe’s Drum Circles and absolutely loved it. I had no idea what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. In a beautiful circle of beautiful people, Chloe set the space and created a structure that allowed us to fully experience freedom of expression, no judgement and no pressure to get it ‘right’. We created a rhythm together, shifted stale energies, let go of tensions in the process and ended with a nice cup of tea. What’s not to love? Taking it in turns, we all used different kinds of drums and percussion. The rhythm was healing, uplifting and empowering. I left the session feeling energised, light and relaxed. I’d recommend drumming to anyone as a satisfying and fulfilling way to express, connect and heal. I’m really glad to have gone and will be definitely be going again. I very much look forward to the next ones.” - Amy
