Providing drum circles for schools, corporate events, birthday parties, and other community settings.
COVID-19 UPDATE SPRING/SUMMER 2020
At this time, all drum circle programs for schools, older adults, and other community spaces and special events have been canceled until further notice, when it's safe for us to do so. We look forward to resuming in the fall.
Drum circle programs are available for all school grade levels, from SK/JK, primary, intermediate, through senior high-school. These programs are all based around playing djembe drums and may include other percussion instruments like shakers etc... All programs are a mix of rhythmic games and instruction tailored to each age group. Learning goals include understanding rhythm and patterns, playing the drum correctly to get the right sound, listening to each other and working together, among others.
Please email for more details and to see a one-page description for your class or grade level.
Corporate - Team Building for Your Business

Older Adults and Clients with Various Abilities
A drum circle is a great way to give older adults an interactive musical experience mixed with some exercise. No matter the level of mobility or musical knowledge, there is always an instrument for everyone. I provide drums of various sizes for all, as well as shakers and other instruments, and we will play some simple patterns and rhythm games that will have everyone in the room moving to the beat. Whether it's playing and singing along to a classic song, or just playing a rhythm that brings back memories, drum circles always fill the room with smiles.
For people with various abilities, I provide a mix of drum sizes and instruments to make sure everyone can participate in the music making experience. Rhythm games and drum beats are used in a way that allows the clients to take the lead in shaping and and creating the music. Fun games that include word play, dancing and singing along make this enjoyable for all.

Other Community Spaces
Drum circles can fit into many indoor and outdoor community settings, including community centers; outdoor festivals, gathering or rallies; with groups like Cubs, Scouts, Sparks, Girl Guides; in combination with yoga, meditation, and other health and wellness practices; with art and music festivals, and many more. I have some experience combining drum circles with other events and settings, and am always open to try new ways to use drumming to help communities and people grow together.
