Drum Circles are a fun entry-level learning experience that is accessible to anyone who wants to participate. It provides a rhythmic collective experience, a creative outlet and a fun way of building community. Participants will have opportunities to explore a variety of small and big drums (djembes, congas, bongos) and shakers to make music with each other and connect on a non-verbal level.
One participant of the drum circles said: "...to express thanks for an awesome jam session! I love that you can gather for an hour with other humans and connect solely through rhythm...yes, we have been able to do it for thousands of years but it is a rare event for us moderns! I felt great for days after!"
