Many of the workshops have been in schools, youth organizations and local businesses.

Creating & Making Music:

The workshops are a great way for students to get involved in creating and making music. No prior experience is necessary, only a willingness to take part and hit the drums.

Safe & Relaxed:

The workshops are held in a safe and relaxed environment. It helps to increase confidence and self-esteem amongst students and gives them a sense of belonging to a team and encourages community spirit.  Rod Pilois -(Facilitator)
