Jenny Beer

Jenny is the only full-time member of the Drum Works team and manages all logistical aspects of the programme as well as overall management of the organisation. She works closely with Artistic Directors Jo and Ross on development of the Drum Works programme and strategy.

Jenny started working on Drum Works as part of her role within Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning, while the project still sat within the Barbican. She joined the Creative Learning team in 2010, initially as a project officer working across music and film projects with local and international partners including the LA Phil, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and the BFI.

In 2013-14 Jenny completed Cause4‘s Guildhall School of Music & Drama Creative Entrepreneurs programme, winning the Amati Guildhall Creative Entrepreneurs Award at the end of the year. This course provided access to mentoring, coaching, business planning, marketing and fundraising, equipping Jenny with the skills to develop a Drum Works as an independent organisation.

Before joining Creative Learning, Jenny had worked for the Guildhall School of Music & Drama’s Development team, the London Symphony Orchestra’s Discovery team and City of London Sinfonia. She has a music degree from King’s College London.
