Community Drum Circle!!!

  • Feb 24, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is an opportunity for you to get your jam on!

This meetup focuses on giving members opportunities to solo, play off each other, experiment with different percussion sounds, and rhythm games.

I bring a few drums and percussion instruments, but I advise you to bring your own if have. 'Veteran' members, please bring a small instrument for someone to play.

I also suggest you bring:

-Water and/or food to share
-Small folding stool or blanket to sit on
-A song and/or rhythm to share

Every meetup is also an opportunity for YOU to faciliate!!! Please let me know before we start if you are interested in facilitating.

Let's play well TOGETHER!!!

    it was a lot of fun and meditative... i am trying to find something as a feedback for "could be different" but i cannot think of it. If anything comes to my mind, i will let you know Brian! :)

      Great deals on amazing djembes at Saturday's workshop at Wula drum. I highly recommend them.

    Really fun group today, very good community vibe even though quite a few new people. Great meeting you all, I really hope everybody comes back! And Brian, my suggestion is I really like to learn about the instruments and a lot of beginner drummers come, so I would say having a brief minute of instruction about the drums, how to get good sound out of them, a little fact about their history, or any little tips or lessons - since you teach that would probably come easy to you - would be the only way I can think of to make these feel more complete. A little "the more you know" moment might be cool right before we start or in the middle when you pass around the hat. It's such an inclusive group, that might be another way to bring new people in to drumming and break the ice. I know when I first came I felt dumb not knowing anything about drums, especially the ones we were working with! Just an idea. ~ Dana :)
