Drum n Beat Sessions - Drumming fun is here!
Drumadore, ex Saw Doctors drummer and Head of the Macnas drummers, Eimhin Cradock, brings a new, FUN and professional way of teaching drums. The two hour 'Drum n Beat Sessions' are tailored for children aged 4-12 years old.
Responding to the strange times and offering an outlet in the midst of the madness the pace will be fast and exciting. The sessions will weave in and out of drumming, games, favourite tunes, jokes, clapping, beats and lots, lots more.
“Group drumming has so many benefits and can really help kids build confidence and make friends in a non-competitive setting”, says Eimhin. “With Macnas and Connacht games and many other live performances such as on The Late Late Toy Show, our drummers have formed great bonds and made loads of memories.” “I think it’s a very powerful way of bringing people together in a world that goes more and more online”, ads Eimhin.
Eimhin has used all his experience as a primary school educator to create a blend of rhythm, movement and energetic drumming called “Drumadore Steps” which he has been teaching for the last five years in Headford and more recently in Claregalway. It is like a martial arts graded system where kids start at white band in junior infants and finish up on black band in 6th.
Drumming unlocks a special place in everyone's hearts and can be brilliant in building confidence. Drumadore is all rooted in fun and friendships. The Drum n Beat Sessions will be an intro to Drumadore for the five Galway towns and in 2021, Westport, Ballinrobe, Tuam, Kinvara and Barna will all be new locations for this exciting new past-time!
