What made you join the drum circle?

I got a djembe for a B-day present years ago and have never really learned (or reallly practiced) to play it.

What is your experience level with drumming (or other instruments)?

I drummed with someone at a friend's home once and loved it .... okay, so, not much experience.

Are you better with learning rhythms by listening to them, or seeing them on paper?

Definitely listening, no question

Would you be willing to play at any public events?

If anyone was willing to listen to me :-)

What is your drum/instrument of choice? (Possibilities include: doumbeks, djembes, bougarabous, bhogram, bongos, etc.)

djembe, because I have one, but willing to drum on anything really. Previoulsy I've used desks, tabletops and various other objects


My Name is Laurette JaNiya and I love drums/beats and meeting new people
