What made you join the drum circle?

It seems to be the only ongoing thing in town, and I notice you have met recently. That's promising.

What is your experience level with drumming (or other instruments)?

It no longer hurts my hands, but I like big circles, so if I get off beat for a while, I won't mess the others up.

Are you better with learning rhythms by listening to them, or seeing them on paper?

I have never seen rhythms on paper. That might work, but I just like to listen for it.

Would you be willing to play at any public events?

If there are enough drums to cover for my slips.

What is your drum/instrument of choice? (Possibilities include: doumbeks, djembes, bougarabous, bhogram, bongos, etc.)

djembe

Introduction

I need a circle where I can catch the beat best I can on my own. I don't take instruction well & get worse when singled out. In a huge drum circle w/ hundreds of people, big drums give the bronchials a real work out & cure my asthma for a few days.

What Jean M. is saying about this Meetup Group

If you have even a slight interest in drumming, you should give it a try. And there are a few drums and other percussion instruments if you come without any. The company is good, and this could build quickly into a good regular circle. The therapeutic effects of drumming are huge and stress releaving. The people in this circle are just nice folks not "performers." The spirit here is truly community drumming, with a range of ages from little kids to twenties to late sixties or seventies.
