Local musician Rob Shannon is set to host a series of drum workshops at Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre from next Monday to help the community find rhythm.
The workshops, to be held weekly from 5.30pm to 7pm, will serve as part of the upcoming community performance project Fast Cars and Dirty Beats.
Mr Shannon has been running similar workshops in Forbes since 2013, and said they never fail to attract a diverse array of people.
"The workshops are free for everyone; from drum nuts to people who have never touched a drum before," he said.
"Fast Cars and Dirty Beats sounds like such an exciting project, and the real joy of these workshops is watching people completely transform their rhythmic skills."
The workshops have been made possible thanks to a microgrant from Arts OutWest.
Mr Shannon, who is a regular collaborator on soundscapes accompanying the Bathurst Winter Festival illuminations [and will again this year], hopes the community will get a lot out of the workshops.
"The real beauty of these community-based workshops are seeing people progress from timid to confident performers in a matter of weeks," he said.
