Off Beat – Beating Anxiety through Drumming!
WHAT IS ‘OFF BEAT’?
Off Beat is an 8-week introductory drumming workshop designed to help balance, manage anxiety, gain confidence and feel grounded through group drumming lessons.
Each hour-long lesson will be co-led by professional drummers Hayley Cramer (Pop Evil) and Sian Monaghan (The Wandering Hearts, Jessie Buckley, Stick in the Wheel, She Drew the Gun, China Crisis)and trained counsellor Amy Walshe.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
You will learn everything from how to hold sticks to basic drum patterns, as well the psychology behind the creative process: helping you translate each new skill you learn into a tool to help navigate those turbulent days.
WHAT WILL I TAKE AWAY?
You will leave each session with the confidence and the skills to take you further along in your musical education whilst also gaining a deeper understanding of how to manage anxiety. Sign-posting services will be available to help direct you to any further support you need regarding your mental health.
