DRUM CIRCLE FACILITATION
Drum Circle…a rhythm-based event (recreational music making), applicable to Communities, Corporations, Organizations, Education, Specific Populations (Special Needs) and as a tool for ice-breaking and bring unity in any event.
It is neither a drum class nor using culturally-specific rhythms.
In Drum Circle, people empower each other in the act of celebrating community and life through rhythm and music (facilitated by Drum Circle Facilitators). Using drums as the main tools in Drum Circle has its many benefits too for health and wellness purposes.
