With respect to life.

FEEDBACK

“Great fun! Good rhythms. Very accommodating leader and group for this beginner. Will be back!”Adrienne S 10/14

"I had a great time, but I got home and tried some of the beats so I could hear how they sounded on my "toy" djembe (couldn't hear in the room), and I ... Thanks for a great time! Really great energy in the room, and great people too. Fred A. 6/21/13

"It was a purely joyful night. I was nervous having never drummed before and yet you made me feel so comfortable. The stories were an awesome bonus. Thank you so much best night I've spent in a long time. Can't wait till the next gathering." BB 10/22/16

"I am more than ever convinced, from my experience with you (Alan) and others at the DrumConnection over the past 20 years, that the work we do with these West African hand drumming rhythms and the sense of community and fellowship generated as we share through the music, brief though it may be, is an integral part of this current world wide transformation - where each individual drummer contributes to the greater benefit of all." CL 2/23/13
