We meet and drum at various locations in the SF Bay Area - mostly in the South Bay and Peninsula. Our schedule varies from month to month. Our circles are mostly free form where you can be creative within the rhythm being followed by the group. Occasionally there may be some light facilitation or direction from the host or a member. We don't do meditation or other rituals.

All experience levels welcome, but we don't have an official training program for beginners. If you drum with us, you will learn by listening, watching and asking questions. Most of the drumming that we do does not require training. All ages welcome, but we don't have activities for children; please keep your children under your direct supervision. Some locations may be difficult or impossible for mobility impaired people.

If you don't own your own drum yet, we usually have a few extra drums and percussion instruments available to use. We encourage you to ask questions and try out the drums that we have while you are deciding on what you want to own.

Creating your account and joining this group is free. will let you know all of the dates, times, and locations of our events via email. We only ask for a contribution of a few dollars to help with the fee or with a facility fee.
