QUESTIONS & ANSWERS FOR DRUMMING
Where do we play?
We can travel to any place in Southern Africa and we are fully mobile to present your drumming session at a venue of your liking. We can facilitate your session either indoors or outdoors, night or day, we can play anywhere you want us to play. As long as everyone has a seat and there is enough room. If you have any doubt in your mind, please feel free to contact us and confirm whether it is possible.
How long is a drumming session?
A drumming session is normally 60 minutes long but can go on for a longer period should you make the arrangement before the event date. The reason for having the drumming session for only 60 minutes is due to the impact the drumming session has on the hands of the clients.
What is the latest time that you will start a drumming session?
We can start a drumming session at 01:00 in the morning if you like, but there will be a cost implication. If the venue is far from our base accommodation arrangements will have to be made.
How many facilitators will come to a drumming session?
In most cases there will be three facilitators, but depending on the size and experience level of the group there could be more or less facilitators per event.
How many people can play in a drumming session?
A drumming circle for a session could range from as little as five people to over 300 people. It’s a matter of choice from the client.
Is a drumming session physical?
Normally a drumming session isn’t very physical. It all depends on the person that plays. The more you get involved, the easier it will be for you to build up a bit a sweat. If the group decide that they want to get up and dance then it’s a whole different story.
Is there an age restriction on drumming?
Definitely not! Anyone can play – from the youngest to the oldest. If they have the will to do it, then they must.
Does each person get a drum to play?
Every person attending the drumming session will receive a drum to play with. The drums may differ in size from person to person.
Can we buy a drum at the event?
Yes you can definitely buy a drum from us. If you want a drum immediately after the drumming session we would suggest that you notify us before the event date that we ensure that we have drums that can be displayed. The cost of the drum will be given to you at the event since the price of the drum is dictated by area, design and size.
