Using drumming as a tool to inspire creativity, build social cohesion and empower young people
“The Drum Works project is powerful and making a difference to children’s lives. It shows the power of the drum, and how this can be the glue that holds one person to another.”
– Dame Evelyn Glennie, virtuoso percussionist
Support our Recovery
Covid-19 has been presented challenges for all music organisations. Our priority has been to maintain a sense of community and connectedness, which we have done by consistently engaging with our members throughout the pandemic. However, the loss of our live events programme has significantly reduced our income and we need all the support we can get to aid our recovery. If you are in a position to help us keep our programme going through these uncertain times by making a donation, we would be very grateful for your support.
Check out what our participants produced during lockdown #1! If you like this, you can view our whole lockdown playlist on our YouTube channel.
Drum Works Studio
Drum Club member and professional jewellery artist Elizabeth Bone has made excellent use of lockdown, creating a new collection of handmade pin badges, earrings and necklaces – all from used drum sticks! 25% of every sale will be donated to Drum Works, supporting our work with young east Londoners.
