Greetings from Katie Lloyd-Nunn at Hawkwood!


I just wanted to remind you of a fantastic weekend coming up in September – our first Hawkwood course of the new season… autumn! Time for new beginnings.

Stefan Cartwright is pulling together a great team to lead you in uncovering your drumming “voice”, unleashing creativity, celebrating life!

Barry Mason has been playing and teaching drumming (including drum kit) for over 35 years. He brings the lovely hang drum and the double-ended clay udu drum, and will give you a “drum alphabet” to play with.

Lena Lotto has worked with the discipline of African drumming and brings that precision into the mix.

Richard Parker leads drum circles and will introduce a wide range of percussion instruments. All three and Stefan bring their enthusiasm and expertise, fresh from a summer of musical gatherings and community.

Many percussion instruments are available through Sound Travels, of course!

Stefan says: The weekends I hold at Hawkwood attract a mix of people of different ages, backgrounds and musical interests, from complete beginners to experienced musicians, making for a fun and vibrant atmosphere. It doesn’t matter whether you think you are musical or not, Simple ways are introduced to get you started and bring the best out of your playing.

For trained musicians the course offers fresh perspectives and the opportunity to play more spontaneously with others. This can be liberating if you haven’t had much experience of playing without sheet music!

The next weekend with Stefan is INTUITIVE MUSIC  15-17 October, featuring Andrew Hodges and Erik Huele

Fee for each weekend (all inclusive) Residential single £248; shared £228.  non-res. £188

 (includes meals except breakfast)

CPD certificates for those working in sound or music therapy, etc., are available upon request.

Stefan Cartwright’s musical experience spans three decades and includes composition, performance, recording, instrument development and working with sound and music in a therapeutic context. See his website for more information.
