All the Drums, Returning Home….

It’s that time of the year again, as all the schools begin to wind down for the Summer holidays, and we begin to move all the sets of drums back to the rehearsal space, where they will be repaired, rested and ready for whatever the next school year throws at them.

Here, in the foreground is about half the stock of instruments we keep specifically for use in workshops with children and young people. Every so often, it comes back into the rehearsal space, where we can assess it, repair it if necessary, and have it ready for the next project.

It’s great looking forward to some well-deserved over the Summer, but sad too, as for some of the older students it is the last time we will see them. However, such is life, and the circle keeps turning…

However, there is some good news in the form of our Summer Drumming camp which will take place for the young one in mid July. The camp will concentrate on six days of drumming over two weeks, and will culminate in a performance as part of the Liberties Festival 2014.

The course is open to any young people from the Dublin 8 area, or maybe even the greater Dublin area – we’re not going to be too fussy, and further details can be got from us at the office: 01-4163901/
