Workshops

Ben Lawrence teaches an extended program of weekly workshops in Bristol, residential courses in Kent, weekend in Cornwall and at summer festivals across the country. He has over 25 years of experience, working with groups, individuals, schools, business and community groups, working with complete beginners through to professionals. Classes can include hand and stick drumming, xylophone, rhythmic exercises, composition, improvisation, traditional rhythms and ensemble playing.

Ben looks at traditional and new rhythms, developing our rhythmic sense and ability to play as a group. He aims to set people at ease, giving them confidence in their ability to understand, enjoy and feel the music, filling your head and body with rhythm.

Residential and weekend courses can be great experiences for the participants, where the food, company and atmosphere are as important as the music.

Ben holds regular weekly sessions in Bristol and the South West.
