What we're about
This group’s purpose is to post 55plus group drumming events, classes, circles and other local drum gatherings that may be of interested to our members. There is no fee to join this group. All ages are welcome, but our group's focus will be on ages 55 and up. Our goal is to share and enjoy the many benefits of group drumming in beautiful South Florida. Our meetup locations will be in the Boca Raton/Delray Beach and surrounding areas, and will usually be outdoors. Group drumming is a simple fun way to connect and express yourself through music. It is also a powerful form of meditation that has a remarkable positive emotional, mental, and physical impact. It can help reduce stress and anxiety, relieve depression, improve mental clarity and focus, build muscle and core physical strength, and improve cardiovascular stamina, all while having fun. Drums are the worlds’ oldest musical instrument and have been connecting peoples for thousands of years. Feel the ancestral vibe and discover the magic of drumming. At our drumming Meetups we use simplified derivations from traditional African songs to learn simple, basic, comfortable techniques, patterns, and rhythms that anyone can play, and play together. No experience is required. We look forward to drumming with you.
