What is this class? 

Children and families have a great time celebrating the spirit of drumming. Connect with the deep pulse of magical rhythms to the heartbeat of the drum. Drumming can have a profound effect on your physical and emotional wellbeing. It can boost the immune system, provide social support, brain stimulation, and heighten self awareness.

 

Why should I take this class? 

Recent studies on biofeedback show that drumming induces brain waves that are similar to the brain waves of meditation. Drumming can help us learn about stress reduction. Drumming to the rhythm of your heartbeat is effortless and immensely pleasurable. The experience transcends all boundaries.

This event is a great opportunity for a FUN family activity. Alejandro creates a joyous and exciting rhythmic interplay between participants of all ages and levels. Drums will be provided or bring your own drum, rattle or instrument. No prior musical experience necessary! Open to all ages.

How much is it? 

Classes are a suggested $5-10 Donation.
