Junk Percussion is particularly popular for summer community events and festivals – people of all ages can come and drop in, arrange their own Drumkit, make their own instruments and jam with strangers. Colin works to facilitate creativity, musicality and experiential learning with all ages and all abilities. Colin has also used Junk Percussion to deliver creative educational projects to Key Stage 1,2 & 3 on the themes of recycling and the physics of sound, choreographed Junk Percussion orchestras and used Junk percussion as a corporate Team Building tool.

Next public workshop is at Greenwood Forest park on Tuesday 27th October. https://www.facebook.com/events/770056656474135/
