'I would invite Heike back to future events and would definitely recommend her'
Heike came to our Playday event on Christchurch Quay….it was amazing. The children absolutely loved it! Heike’s energy and personality attracted all ages and we had some excellent feedback from the parents. Her technique made it easy for even beginners to get stuck in! I would invite Heike back to future events and would definitely recommend her.

'The sessions have been fun, with the bonus of meeting so many interesting people'
Dear Heike, thank you for organizing the drumming sessions at the Hub, in Southbourne. I have enjoyed these so much and am impressed with the numerous different African instruments.
The sessions have been fun, with the bonus of meeting so many interesting people, from experienced musicians to those, like myself, with no experience at all. More please! I am spreading the word.
Cheers, Gaynor x
'Wonderful to see the different drum cultures and heart-beats so harmonised'
Absolutely loved the Community Drumming we did with you. Loved your light and embracing heart energy. Thank you for allowing my Shamanic Drumming alongside the Djembe's, wonderful to see the different drum cultures and heart - beats so harmonised.

'Her informal groups actually do transform lives'
Many people like myself started regular informal drumming and percussion music making with Heike's DrumShare. In common with them, I have new found confidence in my ability to perform, create and share in creative activities, not only music making. Heike Jenkins has that rare combination of integrity, spontaneity and an indefatigable abilty to inspire and energise people of every age and background. Her informal groups actually do transforn lives.
'I felt energized and uplifted'
I didn’t think I would enjoy drumming in a circle with strangers but when I came to your event at Fishermans Walk in October I had a really lovely time. I felt energized and uplifted joining in with other people and I had no problems fitting in with the rhythm and felt part of something I had not really expected. It was a lovely day and I shall come again as soon as I can make it to Bournemouth again!
'I am hoping that she will return to Linwood on a regular basis'
Heike has run a number of drum share sessions at Linwood Special School. It has been amazing to see the enthusiasm, energy and skills that she brings to the sessions, and how she inspires the children to play and enjoy a variety of instruments. I am hoping that she will return to Linwood on a regular basis, and I highly recommend her services to all in the community!
