Sheila Horrell has been drumming for the last 25 years, ever since being introduced to the primal magic of the drum by master percussionist Ubaka Hill.

After studying percussion with various drummers here and internationally, she has been facilitating workshops and Drum Circles for many groups  in Southwestern Ontario, including schools, universities, camps, nursing homes, conferences and agencies.

The experience of introducing new drummers to the ease and joy of music making with the drum has been a prime motivator for Sheila’s continued success.¬† There is nothing like witnessing someone relaxing into their own rhythm and having fun contributing to the music of the whole drumming community.


Elemental Rhythms – In this drumming workshop we will be focusing on the primal elements – earth, air, fire, and water – how to express our connection to them on the drums and then an interactive experience of “conversing/communing” with these elements. This workshop will run twice throughout the weekend! Drums will be provided if you don’t have one.
