What happens at a Drum Circle?
A leader enables participants to express themselves through playing hand drums and percussion instruments. Drum Circle experiences are set up to allow the participants to have a voice, experience group accomplishments and have fun. It is an exercise in non-verbal communication, listening, and cooperation. In ancient tribes it was used to calm and unify people in conflict, and it has been proven medically to have healing powers. Music is created spur of the moment, and every event is always unique!
