Some might say, summer is a good drumstick. But is it more than just the combination of nuts and dairy or the piece of coveted poultry at a picnic. Drumsticks are the backbone of any good summer song. And now is your chance to learn the art of drumming and become one of the coolest rock chicks about.

Back by popular demand, this intro to drumming workshop is run by Alex Roper and covers the basics, from reading notation to counting a pulse, playing a rock beat and forming a simple groove. And unlike dairy or meat, music is something nearly everyone can enjoy. Right?

Roper believes drums are a ridiculously fun instrument, yet there aren't nearly enough girl drummers out there, embracing the snare. "The drums can and should be played by anyone interested, independent of age, gender or experience levels," she says.

No experience is required, and drummers will even get tips on practicing without a kit. No doubt music to your mates' ears while you thrash out a rendition of a John Bonham solo.

If that's enough to get your pulse racing, you're already halfway there. Grab your ticket (they're $35 each) to the All-Girls Intro to Drumming Workshop running Monday, November 30, from 6.30pm at Work-Shop.
