E-transfer is the preferred method (see COVID-19 information). 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
- 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.
- What are we doing to ensure that our visits are safe and
meet all AHS guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19?

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!
