Boomwhackers Are Coming!


Bringing the rhythm back into our lives!

OK, the news is out! I am a closet drummer and percussionist! As a solo artist I used to play various instruments on stage (not all at the same time of course!) including an Korg O1W Keyboard, Fender Strat and a percussion kit stacked vertically above the keyboard! Yes I know it was a pose! But it seemed to go down well in schools, colleges and various concert venues.

bom150_2My favourite guitar among the five I currently own is my Ovation Balladeer. Fantastic instrument with a great sound. When I first started out as a performing musician, I had a deep bowl Balladeer but unfortunately the front of the guitar split on a flight back from the USA. I should have loosened the strings to lesson the strain on the body at high altitude. So all these years later, I have another Ovation – this one was picked up second hand from the pages of Ebay.

So what do we do with all this rythym?

Boomwhackers is the answer! I will be introducing Boomwackers into our choir rehearsals to enable us to learn various rhythms and for team building exercies, all part of the fun of being in a community choir. I may even bring in the good old djembe to help us with the African rhythms!

All good fun coming our way!

If you want more information about any of our choirs, do call me for a chat.
