Junk Percussion Workshops

Fab Drumming workshops are funky, inclusive, musical fun and suitable for all ages and abilities.

This workshop takes 'Rhythm is everywhere' literally. We make music with barrels, pots and pans, jerry cans, PVC tubes, etc.
This workshop also looks at how junk and recyclable objects can be used as percussion instruments. Teachers can use the recycled junk drumming workshop to raise recycling awareness and the importance of the 3 Rs: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

The pupils do not require prior knowledge of drumming or special musical skills. Everyone is given their own instrument and within minutes the class becomes an orchestra.

The workshop can lead to a performance at the end of the day were they show what they have learned and created.

FabDrumming is run by Marion Nieuwenhuizen. Marion is a fully qualified teacher and also teaches African drumming, African dance, South African Gumboot dancing and Body Percussion.

Marion studied dance and music in Mali, Ghana, Senegal, South Africa, Ireland, UK and The Netherlands.
She holds a current enhanced DBS check. She is a member of the Musician's Union and is covered by up to £10,000,000 Public Liability Insurance.


We loved your workshops! All the children came out with big smiles on their faces saying 'it was amazing, you'll love it' to the next group. The children discovered how every day objects could be used to make music. They had lots of fun whilst learning about how sound is made and how it travels. We also liked the way you introduced them to rhythm in a simple and effective way. Thank you again.
