Drumming in a circle is an accessible way for people to participate in communicating with themselves and in a group. It is not dependant on language or the written word. When people make music together, their individual rhythm quickly finds a common pulse. Drumming and playing percussion instruments encourages spontaneous and playful expressions of the heart and allows us to be open minded and playful. An experienced drummer can find joy in merging with the inexperienced to create an ensemble. Try it and surprise yourself!
Come and share our drum circle, it will make you feel joyful and energised.
A drum circle is a celebration of life, community, and music-making in the moment. Participants sit in a circle while playing drums and hand percussion, and join in creating a group rhythm. The circle is moderated by a facilitator who guides the group in rhythms and rhythm-based activities.
The community drum circle is an opportunity to enjoy a group activity with friends and neighbours. It is a family-friendly event and open to all ages. No previous musical or drumming experience is necessary.
It's all about FUN!
Drumming has been used for centuries in nearly all cultures for ritual, healing, and celebration. Drum circle participants are connected to a common purpose by sharing rhythm experiences with others.
It gives participants a sonic massage while providing a creative and emotional outlet.
