This is the first course of its kind in the UK - become a Drum Based Exercise Instructor today...

Welcome to the next big thing in health and wellbeing!

Drumming has so many physical, mental and emotional benefits that we just had to create our own drumming exercise instructor course. Training to be a Drum Based Exercise instructor will give you the opportunity to bring joy, energy, laughter and fun to the people you support. Give anyone a set of drumsticks and they will instinctively start to drum! This is great news because the list of physical, mental and social benefits is endless! The programme is seated and is perfect for people who are unable to participate in vigorous activity.

Joan Runacres, age 98, took part in chair based drumming at Cinnamon Care, Netley Court. She said, “I can’t believe how much fun it was, and the best thing is that my shoulders feel great today after the class.  I can’t wait for the next one!”

This course is available in the following formats:
