Drumming is energetic, creative, and relaxing, and drum circles are a place where everyone can feel like they belong. Bring the kids and join us for some inspiring musicmaking in the park. This is fun for all ages! All drums and instruments will be provided. Caution! You may notice feelings of genuine connection, good will, and a desire to laugh and play.
