Djembe, djun djun, congas, surdo, caixa (anare drum) and repinique.
Cerridwen regularly delivers workshops to schools, colleges and businesses and has been described by her co workers as inspiring and informative as well as good fun. She has an affinity with the under privileged and believes music should be for everyone and understands percussion has the ability to reach out to others, whatever their status. Cerridwen teaches drum kit and although she enters pupils for exams understands that taking the academic route alone doesn’t always convey the spirit of drumming. The roots and spirit of drumming is something she is passionate about.
