More about this Workshop/Service and the Provider


Magic Drum provides drumming workshops and rhythm-based training for school, community and corporate clients across the South West of England.

Magic Drum partners Glyn Bush and Ralph Cree are skilled workshop facilitators with a wealth of experience as teachers and professional musicians, with expert knowledge of Samba, Brazilian and African rhythms and the music of Cuba and Jamaica. Both are graduates of the Village Music Circles UK Basic Facilitators’ Training Level 1 Intensive Course led by Arthur Hull.

We offer a range of educational, community, fun and corporate events for all sorts of people: young and old, special needs, beginners, intermediate and experienced.

These include African and Samba drumming workshops, interactive team building and conference events, community samba workshops, children’s parties, music technology training and drum circles.

Workshops for Schools Magic Drum Workshops for Schools

Magic Drum works extensively in schools around Dorset and further afield, introducing children to the ideas of keeping a pulse, listening and playing together; dynamics, giving and responding to signals and cues, creating rhythms from verbal ideas and devising sound effects to go with live action and performance.

We often contribute workshops to school’s Arts Weeks and lessons or events which look at music from other cultures.

Students learn basic rhythms and how they fit together, developing into a fully participating, interacting group of people creating and sharing a musical experience together and resulting in harmony, fellowship and a feeling of well-being and above all fun!

We also work with teachers who wish to establish their own Samba or African drumming groups within schools.
