Comments from Brasil de todos os ritmos

Thanks for a fab course – I learned a lot and have since been listening to old and familiar songs on my ipod in a different, more informed way. During the weekender I felt both challenged and supported, and I appreciated that you adjusted the schedule to meet our individual preferences.

You fostered an environment where we could learn off each other and being able to share what we know boosted our confidence. I particularly loved being able to try a range of styles. This experience puts me in a better position to decide what to focus on in more detail.

The Mangodrum grids will be a really useful way to re-visit the rhythms you taught us and so will be gratefully received. Nikki Brewer, Norfolk

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the weekend, I learnt so much, and had a lot of fun, even though I was one of the least experienced drummers there. I will definitely come next year, and hope to improve my skills! Elaine Precious, Berkhamsted

Really enjoyed learning all the new stuff especially the conga stuff, repique de Anel and the funk groove. Lovely atmosphere in between sessions and around the campfire. I really loved the whole experience and had a wonderful weekend. Vicky Wyer, Letchworth
