TO GET STARTED WITH THE WELLNESS AND DRUMMING PROGRAM,
Music is one of the oldest forms of preventive medicine known to humanity. Drums impact our mind, body, spirit, and community. Research shows drumming de-stresses the body, improves mood, and provides creative and expressive outlet.
Rhythms are a universal language, shared by all races throughout history. Rhythms have no language barrier and they are the core of celebrations, rituals and healing throughout history.
Drumming is designed to gather people and experience together something that is unifying, fun and like “good medicine”. One does not have to be “musical,’ know how to read music, or even have ever played a percussive instrument before.
Drumming is about play, turn-taking, sharing, improvising, exploring, breathing, stretching, laughing, vocalizing and yes, sometimes even singing.
It is not about the performance, but rather, the process, and it is very fun!
If you have a heartbeat, you have rhythm!
