Our Story

The Community Spirit Drumming program was started by Eamon Carrick from Claddagh, Galway in 2011.

Eamon has always loved Rhythm and Drumming. He conducted research in relation to music therapy while studying for his Hons Degree in Social Studies & Social Care back in 2007.

“There is more to it than just drumming for me. It’s not about being the loudest, fastest or greatest drummer in the group. For me it’s about taking part (participation) – Having fun – Meeting new people – Making friends – Learning various beats and rhythms – Socializing – Chatting over a cuppa – Getting involved – Singing & Chanting – Dancing – Putting the rhythms together and experiencing the magic.”

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower participants in the learning of drumming, dancing and playing various percussion instruments, and encourage expression of the true self without criticism. Our purpose is to provide a social space in the community which is alcohol and drug free. The Community Spirit Drumming is guiding by principles such as; Participation, Inclusion, Equality, Encouragement, Respect, Individualism and work as part of a team.

The Drummers Creed

I am a drummer.... I do not worship my drum, but it helps me to connect with something that is spiritual. I connect with my drum in my way, as many others connect with their drums in their own way. My drum is something that is sacred to me, for it is more then an instrument, it is my altar. I will not touch other peoples drums without first asking their permission, for I respect the relationship that someone has with their drum. I will not assume that I shall be the loudest or the fastest drummer in a circle. I will listen before drumming; I will merge my rhythms into what the group is playing. I will not force the circle onto a specific path, but let it grow to where spirit takes it. I am a drummer and I will seek to constantly learn.I will connect with others, remain open and allow them to join with me. I am a drummer...

Client Testimonials

Was my first time attending a drumming class/circle & I had so much fun!!! Eamon is a good teacher. Found it easy to follow his instruction, he let us just rip & have fun. We even sounded good for a bunch of random strangers coming together through the love of the drum. Will definitely do it again & I highly recommend it to anyone even if you’ve never touched a drum in your life.
