Find the fun in making music together.
Group drumming is a great way to have fun. Even if you’re not musical or have no rhythm you can enjoy a drum circle. There is nothing you have to learn, no tests, no judgement.
During the drum circle we will:
Learn how to handle and play hand drums
Learn to listen, find the pulse, and play in time with the group
Learn how to play with any rhythm using basic patterns
Learn how to recover when you have fallen off of the rhythm
Learn about the different types of instruments and how they combine to create a satisfying circle
Benefits of Drumming:

Drumming has been shown to have multiple health benefits; it strengthens the immune system, reduces chronic pain, helps people heal faster after surgery.
