Parkinson's Beats

drumming was formed in 2022 by NoSPRIG member Jo Holland with the help of an activity grant from Parkinson's UK Scotland. Since then its growing popularity has been astonishing! 


Anyone can take part regardless of their ability - it can be done standing or seated, the movements can be gentle or strong and you can use just one arm, two, or your whole body, it's up to you. There are in-person and online classes, so it doesn't matter where you are, you can still take part.


To get started there's no special equipment required - a couple of wooden spoons and a laundry basket will do!

Click on the musical notes below the video to ask Jo how you can join the fun!
