What is a Drum Circle?

A drum circle is a rhythm-based event where a diverse group of individuals and instruments are gathered for the common purpose of empowering a community with creative self expression in a group music making experience. Rhythmical expression is as ancient and unique as man and found through out world, represented in art, celebration, meditation, and wellness situations. Drum Circles are commonly used for social gatherings or to promote wellness in populations such as nursing homes, assisted living, at risk youth, mentally or physically challenged, and various community / corporate situations.

A Community Drum Circle is a place for individuals to express themselves through the use of drums and percussion instruments. These instruments are accessible to multi-generational and multicultural communities. An individual can express themselves through the instrument without much skill or technique, becoming a part in the group song. The use of different timbal instruments (drums, shakers, bells, etc.) allows the group to experience a metaphoric relation of the unique individuals involved in creating a diverse spontaneous rhythmic song, fun for the the whole group. As the groups sounds evolve, participants begin to hear the rhythmic interdependent relationships creating the songs.
