Jo is an Environmenal Scientist and Yoga Teacher and has been teaching African, Indian and Irish style Drumming Internationally to children in hundreds of schools around the UK since 2002. She was the Djembe Tutor for Plymouth Music Services UK and trained with Arthur Hull of Village Music Circles CA. "Drumming is easy to learn and teach but most importantly it is FUN! My workshops are designed to be enjoyable and help build confidence around playing the drums with others, to help with physical coordination, learn to follow direction and feel a little unity and empowerment when playing together.
I first experienced the djembe in Senegal as a teenager whilst studying for my degree and kept hand drumming as a hobby, learning from my friends until I started working in the community in 2000, drumming and singing with Womens groups, Suicide Prevention groups, Cancer Groups, Special Needs and Mental health Groups, not just teaching African and Brazilian Rhythms but facilitating free form Drum Circles.
My favourite part is watching the faces of a group of people who are of common mind and purpose come together and harmonize with each other through singing and drumming, the room fills with smiles and uplifting energy and it creates a wonderful force that solidifies the group. We are natural creators and get so many benefits from drumming in a group and being allowed to make lots of noise and find our own heart beat.
The beauty of the drum is that you don't have to be a "drummer" to play one! You don't need to read music either, and even if you have no arms or legs we can adapt a drum for you.
