Community music classes at Rhythm Hut

Djembe class at The Rhythm Hut

The Rhythm Hut in Gosford is running community music classes in African djembe drumming, Japanese Taiko drumming, didgeridoo (for men only), ukulele and, new to this term, is The Rhythm Hut Community Choir.
“We are a friendly and supportive space and cater for all levels of ability.
“Classes begin the week starting February 12, and run for 8 weeks,” the Hut’s Ms Lou Sawilejskij said.
“Drumming is for everyone, no need to be able to read music, or even understand music theory.
“It’s a universal language coming from almost every cultural background on earth and you don’t even need your own drums, we provide them for you.”
According to Ms Sawilejskij, drumming reduces stress and stored tension, reduces patterns of anxiety and depression, improves social interaction, increases confidence and promotes creative expression in a safe and welcoming environment.
“And while there’s loads more benefits we could list, the best reason of all to drum is that it’s just plain old-fashioned fun,” Ms Sawilejskij said.
“Whether you’re interested in Djembe or Taiko drumming, we have the class for you.
“We can teach you how to beat out a rhythm, brush up on your skills, or even take your drumming to the next level with attention to style, form and even through our exciting Masters Workshops scheduled throughout the year.
“If you would like to learn more about the classes, come along to one of our free drumming open nights.”
The next open night will be held on Tuesday, February 6.
