ALBANY DRUM CIRCLE WILL NOT BE MEETING IN-DOORS UNTIL THE SPRING WHEN THE WEATHER BREAKS AND WE CAN DRUM OUTSIDE. We meet every week or two 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 share what they know. Our goal is to have fun, gain proficiency and enjoy the experience of group drumming. Our Spring and Summer home is The Crossings in Colonie. Please bring a chair. 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.
FEE: $5 to drop in or $15 to cover a 6-month period (May 1 - October 31, November 1 - April 30). Dues covers our Meetup fee, Dan's time and repair/replace the musical instruments Dan brings to class. Please opt to receive e-mail messages on Meetup because that's how Dan will communicate last minute changes in the schedule due to weather or unforeseen circumstances.
Important that if you say you will be attending and then cannot that you change your status for the drum circle event.
