An afternoon of musical fun

It has been said that ‘Music is the language of us all’ and it was certainly proven to be so at an event I helped out with last Thursday 27th October 2016. The afternoon brought people together with just one aim, to make music and what a lot of good music was made collectively.

The event was a drumming workshop, curtesy of drums4fun with the Echo centre (a day centre for people with physical disabilities) joining forces with the residents of Passmore Edwards House (extra care housing for 50 +). Now strictly speaking it wasn’t just drums but a host of percussion instruments too. What a fun and heart warming afternoon. Several of the attendees excelled themselves by playing drums and percussions at the same time! The mood was happy and jovial and there was so much talent in the room. I offered a blind gentleman a triangle and his timing was impeccable! From there he progressed on to a variety of drums including a snare drum and some massive bongos and as for me I was part of the tambourine girls and the afternoon was finished off with sausage rolls and mince pies with clotted cream kindly provided by the Echo Centre.
