FOC community sessions

We are often asked to work without payment, and whilst we would like to give back to our community we cannot honour these requests except for the the following:

Organic Rhythm offers local charities and not for profit organisations within our  very local community 12 drumming sessions per year at no charge.

We have no free sessions left until 2016. If you would like to apply for one of these sessions for next year please contact us in December 2015.
