My name is Aid.
I run Drum Machine and will be teaching the upcoming Drum Machine Recruitment 8 week course starting Friday 25th October.
I have to say, i am very excited about it.
I always am when it comes to these kind of teaching environments.
I find them addictive. There is a real spark of electricity and life that flows through the people.... me included.
Nobody really knows anyone.
The only thing that draws them there is the drum and the want/ need to learn something new.
Something that has somehow reached out to them.
The drum has found them and here they are.
It's a beautiful thing and I love it.
We have been dancing and healing ourselves and our communities through repetition of rhythm since the dawn of time.
My aim is to tap into that energy.
That is what Drum Machine is about.
That is what I am about and it is what I try to put into the courses.
(I hope) they are exciting, energetic, hypnotic, powerful, exhausting and energising at the same time.
The drum and the rhythms it brings have taught me more about myself than anything in this life (apart from my 7 year old daughter maybe…. LOL) .
They have saved my life on so many occasions.
Healed my hurts.
Made me cry. Made me laugh my head off.
Forced me tip my head to the stars and give thanks……….
There is no room in my head and therefore, in my class for baggy beats and I will take you on a journey that avoids them at all costs.
We are a machine that produces a healing, rolling movement of noise.
So come with an open heart to grow and a willing body to sweat and blister and we will unlock a few things.
I love what I do and I love to share it.
Let's do it.
