Therapeutic Drum Circles for People of All Abilities

IMG_2834

I’ve been a drummer for my whole life and a drum teacher much of it (click here).  I also have a masters degreeIMG_1527 in Biotechnology an had a research administration job until my disease progressed to the point that I couldn’t do it.

i was seeing a lot of research on the effects of group drumming on many groups (Parkinson’s, PTSD, autism, stress, etc.) and I knew that, anecdotally, it made me feel better.

IMG_1523I decided I would buy a bunch of drums and percussion, make sure that people of all abilities can participate, an bring joy to the masses (and it makes me feel better, too)!

I love doing this and it’s as therapeutic for me as it is for everyone participating! I, of course, have expenses related to travel and instrument repair and replacement. I do appreciate donations :).
