EcoBeats has term-long drumming courses for primary and high school students, as well as special needs students and schools. A fun way of teaching drumming and music to students, they will learn rhythm, how to listen to each other and work together, and have tonnes of fun at the same time! Staff development training sessions in rhythm and drumming are also available. 

Nicola’s EcoBeats drumming workshop was inspiring, fun and practical. I have always felt like drumming was something out of my reach, but Nicola’s teaching style was gentle, inclusive and encouraging. She had an entire room full of adult beginners making exhilarating rhythms on a simple stack of buckets! As a teacher and adult educator, I would highly recommend her workshops for both professional development and school groups.

The Eco Beats workshop I attended was a fantastic experience. Everyone involved had huge smiles on their faces for the entire thing! It was raucous and energetic and just downright delightful!

Nicola was warm and conscientious as an instructor, keeping it light and easy for people of all skill levels!

She is also a phenomenal personal teacher. Having been her drumming student for well over a year, it’s hard to overstate how much I feel like I’ve advanced in skill and confidence. She makes learning the drums a lot of fun, and designed the lessons to suit both my skill level and my interest, while keeping me learning all the fundamentals. I definitely recommend her (and Eco Beats) to anyone interested in getting into the world of drumming or advancing their skill. She is truly one of the most skilled drummer and best teachers I’ve ever had!
