“Sally is a brilliant teacher and mentor. A won-derful, fun and informative course. I learned so much. Thank you! I liked it all. The drum jour-ney was amazing and very inspiring”

Rebecca Croydon

“It’s well worth attending the drumming work-shop. Lots of hand on and theory and it’s fun. You get to experience what it’s like to give and receive a sound session. It’s a beautiful vibra-tional healing workshop. Thanks Sally. I like that I got to experience pracital and theory. And also that I got to experience what it was like to give and have one. I got to sit in circle with the women. That’s always pretty special. I love the shamanic drumming.”


I decided to do this workshop to learn some-thing new and have some fun in the process and it was that and so much more. I learnt so many different rhythms, techniques and infor-mation about drumming. Highly recommended as a beginner! I liked learning about how to get the best out of my drum and the other rhythm instruments. I’m definitely buying a wind chime. Also the Shamanic Journey was wonderful. Sally also makes you fell very comfotable if it is your first time playing a drum."
