We meet every two weeks or so to practice, learn new rhythms and experience the joy of drumming with like-minded folks. No prior experience necessary. Our facilitator Dan Bernstein will teach the basics of drumming on a djembe, lead us in new rhythms and practice old ones. Participants are encouraged to lead and share what they know. Our goal is to have fun, gain proficiency and enjoy the experience of group drumming. Our Winter home is Southgate Elementary School in Loudonville where we meet every 2 weeks. Our Spring and Summer home is The Crossings in Colonie. We also drum at the Troy Farmer's Market in the late Spring and Summer. From time to time we'll meet at the Ciccotti Family Recreation Center. We are open to new locations. At the Crossings you will need a chair. A chair will be provided at Southgate. Let us know if you need a drum. Join us on Facebook as Albany Drum Circle where we will post videos and announcements of community drumming activities. Please join this fun and friendly group. Dues are only $5 to cover a 6 month period.
