Thanks to the generosity and support of the lovely folks at Stratford PlayHouse, we now have the perfect venue for this new drummer's club. Here's what's happening:
FREE TASTER COURSE - WEDS 26th AUG
Awwww....you missed it! But here's a very quick video clip of what our Taster Sessioneers managed to achieve from scratch in just 1 hour!

SAFETY & COVID INFORMATION
Both DrumSquad and The PlayHouse take the safety of our drummers very seriously, and are planning these events very carefully to ensure safety and peace of mind at all times.
We monitor the government Covid 19 regulations and advice daily to make sure all the classes are compliant and well-organised. One way systems are already in use at the venue, hand gel is available at the door, social distancing will be implemented throughout the sessions, and all instruments and accessories will be disinfected with certified Covid anti-viral wipes. We ask that you please wear a mask if you are able to.
Drums are loud and potentially damaging, especially over long-periods, so ear protection is highly advised. DrumSquad will provide a choice of adjustable ear-defenders (disinfected before every use, and 4 Day Safe) or sealed, disposable foam ear-plugs. Some people, especially children, find these difficult to use, hence the ear defender option. You may of course bring your own ear defenders from home if you wish. All instruments and equipment are kept in good condition and are safety-checked before every use.
All workshop leaders and PlayHouse staff are Advanced DBS Background checked and certified, and are fully insured for Public Liability. Government guidelines for child-to-supervisor ratios will be followed at all times and emergency contact information will be taken in advance.
