TENNIS & DRUMMING MEET

Innovative thinking leads to unexpected opportunities

Back in 2001 Rob Wines was endeavoring to return to the tennis circuit when Angela Grima suggested using drumming during training to help regain energy levels & general feel for the rhythm of tennis. At the time Angela was having outstanding results using drumming & rhythm to help children with learning difficulties improve at reading, writing and mathematics.

These experiments during training were so successful that within a short space of time Racquet Beats – tennis, drama & drumming camps were born.

This innovative way of thinking had children learning various racquet and footwork co- ordination techniques through a series of drumming patterns followed by drama classes which developed creative and positive thinking. A program was then developed that assisted enthusiastic young tennis players in their skill acquisition and perception of rhythm in different on court movement patterns.

OUR APPROACH HAS ALWAYS BEEN UNIQUE

Rhythm in Life, Rhythm at Work, Rhythm in Education

At the time the idea of using rhythm and in particular live drumming to aid skill development in sports was an area relatively unexplored in Western culture. As this experiment developed it became apparent many cultures have long and rich traditions of using music as a part of everyday life and its activities.
This unique approach and forward thinking to the use of music & rhythm is an integral part of Drum Beats philosophy. This philosophy has been enriched by Angela’s background in theatre, opera, jazz, world music, public speaking and film composing. Combined with a talented and multiculturally diverse team of musicians & other performers this has helped Drum Beats to develop & deliver unique experiences for a wide range of clients.
