Drumming is fun and a good release from the driving things of everyday life.  There are many benefits from drumming: a connection to the music world, a release of stress, time with friends, time for you, creating something together, bonding time, community time, meditation, and a boost in your immune system. Wow! Make the move – come to a circle, take some lessons, come and try a shaker or clap along! Come and be a drum buddy!
