There are many benefits to creating music in a group, and it is widely accepted by teachers, youth workers, music therapists, and health practitioners as being an effective way to encourage life skills and develop confidence and self-esteem.
Drumming increases concentration and focus, helps develop communication skills and encourages people to listen and communicate effectively with each other. It is a great way for people to explore their creativity, which leads to greater respect and understanding of themselves and others.
The musician is constantly adjusting decisions on tempo, tone, style, rhythm, phrasing, and feeling—training the brain to become incredibly good at organizing and conducting numerous activities at once.

This End Up - An introduction to hand drums and percussion

This is a universal style of hand drumming.

This means that the class focuses on those aspects of drumming that are universal to most any drum or drumming tradition that utilizes hand drumming.
Drum circles encourage participants to express their creativity and develop skills in social and emotional development as well as musical and rhythmic understanding. A drum circle is accessible to all participants at any level of entry.

Students are not bound to any specific tradition and learn how to create their own rhythms as well.
Although the class is primarily taught on djembe drums (provided), the goal of the class is to teach people to play any hand drum with confidence and flare in any situation (drum circle, on stage, alone, etc.).
Most of all, the goal is to get people to truly enjoy the art of drumming!

This class is geared towards those who have little or no prior drumming experience, but also accommodates intermediate players.
We cover basics such as: holding and striking a drum properly, basic coordination drills, easy rhythms, and playing as a group.
Drums are available to use if you do not own one.
Those with prior experience will be given more challenging rhythms and playing techniques.
