Have you ever thought to try your hand at a little drumming? Well now is your chance with RePercussion running a beginners drum workshop at the Byron Bay Community Centre on the evening of Tuesday, March 25.
Paul Barrett, founder of Samba Blisstas, left his drum collection to the Byron Bay Community Centre and it is in his memory that members from Samba Blisstas have regrouped to ‘continue to spread his love of music’ and set up the drumming group RePercussion with the ‘the desire to continue what he had created,’ said Sharyn Alderton.
The new beginners’ drumming class has been set up ‘in order to encourage the local and wider community to get involved.’
Classes will be led by professional drummer Damian Campbell and is a chance for new drummers to discover the fun and excitement of carnival drumming. Students will be introduced to playing Surdo drums in the Brazilian Carnival Drumming style.
‘No experience is necessary and everyone’s welcome,’ continued Sharyn
