Drum Connections

Relax, have fun and drum!

Drum Connections is a series of four community drumming sessions designed to create a fun and exciting group experience through the use of drums that are easy to play.


We will start each session by learning the basics of hand drumming, but since the sounds and results are immediate, we will quickly progress and expand our abilities to incorporate different rhythms that fit easily together, converting the group into a small but fantastic drumming ensemble.

Group drumming is quick and easy to learn so no prior musical knowledge is required. It only takes a few minutes for a beginner to join in the fun and become fully immersed in the excitement of connecting and engaging with others and creating music together. Participants listen and respond, and work together in a playful manner so that individual sounds quickly become a harmonious whole.

We look forward to seeing you there!
