~You may have heard the percussive element to the Phil Collins classic ‘In the Air Tonight’ and thought it sounded dramatic within the context of the song. But did you know there is a more subtle, considerate drum that requires dexterity and natural rhythm.

Taking place this Thursday 14th November is ‘Harmonious Beats - Djembe Class’. It will last one hour and a half between the hours of 6pm - 7.30pm and it will take place at UCLAN’S Media Factory Room ME226.

The session will be taught by experienced drumming teacher Sean O’Hara. Sean is a professional musician and can be seen as a member of local group ‘Mobius Loop’ as well as ‘The Beatnik Collective’.

Please note - each and every session will start at an introductory level to get you acquainted with the instrument. All abilities are welcome and the djembe’s will be provided but if you own one yourself feel free to bring it along. The fee for participation amounts to £5.

These sessions are supported by the UCLAN’s Something for Everyone project. Providing opportunities for local residents by giving them the confidence to go forward with new goals and ideas.

So next time you hear ‘In the Air Tonight’ consider the more considerate percussive instrument that creates a unifying sound and a rhythmic feel:-
