Drumming Circle Workshop

Drumming Circle Workshop


About This Workshop:
  • Date: June 4, 2023
    • 7:00 to 8:30 pm
  • Instructor: Julie Ditta

Let out your inner drummer! We start with a meditation and then let the drumming take us on a creative, energizing, music-making journey that is never the same twice. You don’t need to know how to drum or have previous musical experience to be part of this unique circle. There is no right or wrong way to drum and no pressure to perform.  We embrace the flow of free form drumming.  Just let go and drum.

Drumming is a natural well-ness tool for releasing stress, boosting the immune system, lifting the spirits and having fun. Drumming shifts difficult emotions, grounds you in the present, restores vitality, and raises your vibration.  It is a bridge that gets you out of your head and back in touch with your heart.

If you have a drum please bring it.  If not, Julie can provide you with one.  Or just play on your thighs, find instruments in your home like buckets, wooden spoons or even soup cans.  Get creative. Go outdoors. Sticks, rocks, branches of leaves seed pods make great natural percussion instrument.  Percussion is any two objects struck together.
