At the weekend, we were delighted to return to Plumtree in Marrickville and be part of their Father’s Day celebrations. There were many great children drumming and none more determined than this little girl. She literally dragged as many drums as she could into the centre of the circle and created an enormous multi-timbred drums-from-around-the world drum kit and proceeded to play them all with fierce in-the-moment abandon.
Her parents kindly sent me this message and the photo:
Just a short note to say thank you for the fantastic drum therapy session you gave on Saturday at Plumtree! Both our kids had a great time but our daughter age 4 in particular was in her element and was captivated by the whole experience – she loved every second of it and didn’t want it to end. I think she has found the outlet she needs – and we have found her Christmas present!
