An Introduction to Hand Drumming and Drum Circles
In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn basic drumming techniques and participate in a drum circle. We will examine the benefits of drum circle participation including the development of musical skills such as rhythm, improvisation, and ensemble playing. In addition, we can observe non-musical benefits such as stress reduction, self-expression, confidence building, and community connection. We will also discuss facilitating, the art of leading a drum circle, as well as tips for starting your own drum program.
