What we're about

We are here to help people rediscover and explore the deep relationship with the rhythmic universe that permeates every aspect of our lives. For those that have already made this profound discovery, WELCOME! The purpose of a drum circle is to give participants an in the moment experience of their own rhythmic spirit and power. If you have never experienced "the moment" join us for our next Drum Circle Meetup! The Central Florida Drum Circle Meetup exists to promote and connect people of all ages, religions, cultures and walks of life to the various rhythm and sound healing events taking place in and around Central Florida. If you know about a local drum circle event not listed on our calendar, contact the organizers so we can work with you to inform the community about new opportunities.

Shaman/Hoop Drum Building at the 2019 DCFG Conference

Needs a location

Build your own Shaman (Hoop) Frame Drum at the Drum Circle Facilitators' Guild Conference! (Wolf will also be presenting at the Conference: The Science and Spirit of the Healing Drum! The conference info is here: https://www.dcfg.net/event-3100830; conference registration is separate from drum building registration.) This is a fantastically primal experience and you will not only craft your own spiritual instrument but will learn some of the technique and lore associated with this style of Healing Drum. All materials are included. Your frame can be either multi-ply Maple (domestic) or solid bentwood Mulberry (imported). You select the type of rawhide drum head you want; the rawhide lacing used to attach your head will most likely be Horse (for strength) and the lace to create the handle will match your selection of hide if possible, but we make it a point to use as much of every hide as possible by cutting all scrap into lace so it may vary. You will personally mount your rawhide drum head and craft your handle from the lacing on the back. Hoops under 16" MUST be crafted from Deer skin (or upgraded to Elk or Moose, IF we can get thinner hides for the smaller hoops.) You may currently select Calf/Cow, Deer, Goat or Camel hide for your instrument—please include a note with your order letting us know your top 2 preferences (Hides can be very seasonal!). Other hides (Moose, Elk) are available at an additional cost; contact us to order these so we can check availability and price. Prices listed include the workshop fee and all materials required! https://jamminshop.com/products/hoop-frame-shaman-drum-building-workshops-at-dcfg (You must be a conference attendee to participate, and that is a separate fee.) Hide Characteristics Calf/Cow: Medium tones. These skins tend to be somewhat translucent which gives a very cool appearance, especially around fires. :) Camel: Good tonal range, more resistant than other hides to humidity changes in tone. Deer: Higher pitched tonality; beautiful white/golden hues. Goat: Deeper tones; we use African Goat hide which is hand-scraped to remove hair which can leave beautiful patterns on the hide. Horse: Unbleached horse has rich dark hues (see pictures) and fantastic tonal quality. NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE The following two skins are available for an additional cost. If you choose one of the following options, you will need to add 2 items to your shopping cart: Choose your desired size drum and add it to your cart; then come back to this page and add the ELK or MOOSE Skin Upgrade. Elk: Very similar to deer but tends to be thicker, so deeper in tone. Moose: Very similar to deer but tends to be slightly darker hued and thicker, thus deeper in tone. Please call, text, or email with any additional questions.

Learn to Drum: Community Drumming Class with Wolf

Sacred Moments Yoga Studio

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Looking to get started learning to drum, or to improve your basic abilities and move more towards intermediate skills? Then, join us Friday, Jan. 4th 7pm. This class is appropriate for Beginner to Intermediate players, on ANY STYLE of Hand Drum or Percussion Instrument! Join us the first Friday of every month for a fun introduction to the foundational skills and concepts of Worldbeat Hand Drumming including hand technique, listening, polyrhythmic structure, and relating to Clave and Downbeat. Our goal is to impart correct hand technique for the instruments and teach you to think polyrhythmically, allowing your expressive and improvisational skills to organically evolve. Bring your own drum or use one of our class drums! We will focus on showing you the basics of technique on your instrument, and then we will work on various drills, rhythmic counting and voicing techniques, Call-and-Response exercises, and then we will construct a unique polyrhythmic orchestration each week, teaching basic worldbeat cadences and the principles of transformation that underlie the great rhythm traditions! This allows us to teach the Musicality of Community Drumming. The traditions of Worldbeat percussion evolved to facilitate a village of players cooperating to create coherent collaborative rhythms, where everyone uniquely contributes and everyone’s contribution is felt. It is this concerted effort that gives these rhythms their community-building potential. 90 minutes class $15 in advance. $20 day of class. Use of drums are on a first come first serve basis. If you need to “borrow” a drum, reserve your place early to ensure one! PREREGISTER AND SAVE! https://www.paypal.me/sacredmoments/15 Instructed by Martin "Wolf" Murphy: Wolf Murphy, M.A. (English), RYT has been instructing, facilitating drum circles, and storytelling with the drum for decades.

He has completed the Remo Health Rhythms Facilitator training; is a Rhythmic Entrainment Intervention Authorized Therapy Provider; and has performed, practiced Sound Healing modalities, and recorded from coast to coast. He has recently published The Encyclopedia of World Rhythms, Vol. 1 (2013 rev.2017); Vol. 2 (2017); and Rhythms of New Orleans (2017), with lots more to come. Wolf completed Shine On Yoga’s 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training and has created numerous workshops incorporating drumming for brainwave entrainment with yogic practice and vibrational energy cleansings (Gong Flow Meditation Sessions) and treatments using instrumentation including rattles, singing bowls, bells, and gongs. He has studied with master drummers from West Africa, the Congo, the Middle East and more. He has trained on ngoma, djembe, and dunun, as well as Arabic/North African tabla, riqq, and frame drums. He produced, directed, and performed in the award-winning “The Extraordinary Fila” for the 2005–06 Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festivals.
