jamani hands on! Yard Sessions
Looking for a fun activity for your kids this summer?
Looking for a fun activity for you?!
Contact us to book your own jamani hands on! Yard Session. We'll come right to your home, set up in your yard, and offer a fun, interactive 15 minute drumming experience for your child/children, yourself, and/or anyone else you'd like to invite! Whether you'd like to learn some African drumming or a Bucket drumming routine, we'll personalize the session
to the age and experience level of the participant(s).
We'll be offering jamani hands on! Yard Sessions throughout the summer in the Lethbridge/Coaldale area. Plus, we'll be in the Sundre area from July 13-18! Yard Sessions can also be paired with Sidewalk Concerts - we'll bring some fun, eclectic instruments from around the world and play a mini-concert for you!
Recommended donation for each jamani hands on! Yard Session is $35.
jamani hands on! Yard Sessions are perfect for:
High-energy kids who love to explore
Teens who enjoy music or just need something new to challenge their minds for a few minutes
Anyone whose summer plans got disrupted who wants to have a little "summer camp" experience
You! Have a couple friends over and try something new yourself - it's fun and low pressure!
Frequently Asked Questions:
What are we doing to ensure that our visits are safe and meet all AHS guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19?
This is a big one! We are committed to making sure that our program aligns with the provincial guidelines for Stage 2 reopening. Please contact us for details.
What if the weather is not good during the time that I've booked?
We will make every effort to reschedule if the weather does not cooperate. If rescheduling isn't possible, you will receive a full refund.
Can we book you twice? Can we book a session longer than 15 minutes?
Sure! If you'd like to book a double session or have us come more than once, we can teach you two different routines (or switch instruments), or we can spend longer on a more difficult piece. Or we can pair up a Yard Session with a Sidewalk Concert!
What are the payment options?
E-transfer is the preferred method. However, cash and cheque (payable to Matt and Jodi Groenheide) can also be accepted at the time of the session. If paying with cash, please have correct change.
Who can participate? Is there a minimum age for participation?
There are no age limits for our sessions - just a few guidelines:
Bucket drumming is available for participants ages 6 and up (ages 5 and under are welcome to do African drumming)
A parent or trusted adult needs to be present for sessions with kids under 10 years old
How many people can participate?
Maximum four participants at a time. (Some exceptions may apply - please contact us if you'd like to discuss this.)
Do we need to provide any materials?
For African drumming sessions, please supply chairs for all participants (we will bring two for ourselves). Very young children may prefer to stand while playing. Chairs aren't needed for Bucket drumming.
