Young Drums beat up a storm

The message that the Young Drums Orchestra was closing down in 2005 was reported loud and clear according to head drummer boy Peter Jaggle, but unfortunately, he says the message that the Young Drums School is alive and well wasnt quite so well publicised.

The Young Drums School is still very much in existence, and is still running its highly acclaimed drumming and percussion tutorial programs which include one-on-one drumkit lessons and adult drumming classes.

Peter is now inviting registrations for the annual Fun Drums Summer School for people of all ages and abilities. This is a week-long intensive learning experience with the emphasis on enjoyment. This is the 15th consecutive year that the holiday workshop program has run and this year being an auspicious anniversary promises to be even more of a hoot than usual.

Participants will be introduced to drumkit, African rhythm songs, Japanese Taiko drumming and much more. The workshop will culminate with a concert where everyone can strut their stuff. The Young Drums School has offered this annual event at the same price for the past seven years and will continue at $220 including GST for the 2007 workshop. To book a place phone Peter on 6621 4888, leave a message and hell get back to you.
