OFF BEAT – Beating Anxiety through drumming

What is ‘OFF BEAT’

OFF BEAT is a 3-part introductory drumming workshop designed to help balance, manage anxiety, gain energy and confidence, and feel grounded through group drumming lessons.

Each 2-hour long session will be co-led by both a professional drummer and a trained counsellor.

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?
