Music Generation Laois’ Stampede Drumming programme offers students the opportunity to develop drumming skills, using both drum sticks and a range of other percussive instruments such as African Drums and South American drums and hand-held percussion. As well as drumming, this programme of study incorporates learning musical notation and a range of music skills in a fun environment, with well-known drumming tutor Eddie O’ Neil. Eddie is renowned across Ireland for his excellent work with schools and groups.
Performing is central to learning an instrument, and Stampede Drummers will be invited to take part, as a group, in a range of Music Generation Laois performances.
