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.”
