Always strive to find a lifestyle and job that you love and are passionate about. 


Aaron Meli - Slapping Skins

I set up my drumming business in 2002 and went self employed a couple of years later. I work with schools, art providers, hospitals and disabled groups. I usually go to a venue with about 15-30 African drums and run a session for the group, getting them to play the drums together.

I got the idea for this from an apprenticeship I did out in Japan with a master drummer. My business has developed through word of mouth and I work all over Wales and parts of England although I’ve not had any luck yet breaking London!
