Agenda: Intention, Drum Circle, Drum Practise

  • Monday Jan. 11th and Jan. 25th  1 – 3 pm
  • Monday Feb. 15th and Feb. 29th, 1 – 3 pm
  • Monday March 7th and March 21st 1 – 3 pm

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 with an increase in your white blood cell count. 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!
