KamloopsDrumConnection.com and You!

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!

Happy 2017!

Drum Circle Times offer connection, communication, community, creativity, and celebration! Come and join us in FUN with the DRUM and other instruments!  Drumming, singing, dancing, shaking,……whatever you want it to be.
