COMMUNITY DRUM CIRCLE

Needs a location

Find your groove in this friendly and supportive drum circle!

NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE? NO WORRIES! You will be gently guided into simple patterns that will have you drumming in no time.

NO DRUM? NO WORRIES! I have plenty to share, along with shakers, bells and other fun stuff :)

Recreational group drumming and music-making is a great practice that supports health & well-being. It's transformational: it can uplift your mood, decrease your blood pressure, decrease anxiety, increase your energy, increase your feelings of connection and IT'S JUST PURE FUN!
We welcome you to become part of this monthly drumming, music-making community. Bring your harmonica, flute, tongue drum, etc. to add to the mix - they add the "spice" to the drumming. This is a facilitated event; newcomers are always warmly welcomed and will be guided into finding their rhythms while more experienced drummers will have the chance to show us their chops while supporting the group experience.
COME JOIN US!
