About this Event

This interactive and engaging drumming and percussion workshop allows participants to release energy and express their emotions through music, experiencing the holistic benefits of drumming whilst learning new musical skills.

The content will be structured to suit the participants on the day and will explore musical styles from around the world, with an emphasis on:

  • Cultural awareness
  • Celebrating diversity
  • Self expression
  • Improvisation
  • Rhythmic concepts
  • Composition elements such as timbre, dynamics, textures and structure

Led by professional drummers Tim Cook and Greg Burns, participants of their Resonate Drum Workshops come away from their sessions with a deeper appreciation for music and some new-found skills.

ABOUT RESONATE

Tim Cook has been a passionate percussionist with great excitement and love for world music since his early years, finding drumming to be his best voice of expression at age 4. Witnessing the powerful Jamaican Sound Systems playing roots reggae and dub in the local park and feeling the powerful rhythmic vibrations from local Bhangra Dhol Drumming groups at school in Handsworth, Tim has long been inspired by world rhythms.

Around the same time, Tim also participated in community-based spiritual drumming group Psalm Drummers, who provided him with the opportunity to play in an ensemble for the first time. The rest of his childhood was full of music, playing in steel pan groups, brass bands and forming original projects with peers.

Now a first class graduate of Leeds College of Music, Tim plays in established original bands like Necktr, Jermaine and the Blue Flames, plus his own band, TC and the Groove Family. Tim is determined to give back to the musical community by providing opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to express themselves.

Greg Burns discovered drumming from an early age, starting out as a classical percussionist and training at Birmingham Junior Conservatoire. He found his real love, however, in the freedom of improvised Jazz music, the irresistible grooves of Hip-Hop and the wild dance rhythms of world music such as Afrobeat and Latin.

Since graduating from Leeds College of Music's Jazz course with a first class degree, Greg has played with a vast range of artists, including Necktr and up-and-coming artists such as SFVEN, rappers Lausse the Cat and Young Wizard, and singers like B-ahwe and Barratt.

Greg brings his interest in groove and musical relationships to the structure of the Resonate workshops, with the desire to pass on the inexplicable joy of playing in ensembles.
