What we're about

Meet other local hand drummers who are interested in group drum circles and jams, workshops, classes, and trying out some different drums and rhythms.

* At most of the drum events we will have extra drums available for those who don't have a drum yet, but please let us know ahead of time if you'll be needing one.
* If your drum needs tuning, or major help, we can steer you in the right direction.

This is a great place to get info on drums, and to find out about other cool drum-related happenings around the Milwaukee area (we also post some information about certain events located farther away as well (e.g. Madison and Illinois)).

Please email the organizer (Kristie) if you have questions.

Handpan Sound Meditation

Dreams Life & Wellness Center LLC

Join us for an evening of peaceful meditation with the resonant songs of Harmonic Tonic, a handpan ensemble, on Saturday, March 9th from 7:00 - 8:00 pm. Harmonic Tonic will play a variety of meditative pieces in a continuously flowing session (there will be no talking between pieces). The ensemble will play duets, trios, solos, plus a few songs that may incorporate the soft sounds of a drum beat. The handpan is a steel instrument played with the hands. Sounding similar to a harp, its music is very soothing and relaxing and goes well with meditation. Before the start of the session, there will be a brief introduction to the handpan instruments. Participants are encouraged to sit, lay on the floor, or even stand - whichever is most comfortable. If you feel you would like to move around or dance softly, this is okay too! Please bring your own cushion, mat, blanket, pillow, or whatever you need to be completely comfortable. Early bird online registration is $16 per person.

Drum Circle at the Center for Well-Being in Hartland

This will be an open freestyle drum circle devoted to drumming and drum meditation, which will be facilitated by Brian Dopke. We will encourage all levels of drumming and hope people will bring their favorite rhythm to share. The time will be from 6:30 to 8:00, though we could go longer if we choose, if a drum needs work, or if someone wants to work on a special rhythm one on one.
