We delivered a free public drum circle at the Weston branch of Broward County Libraries. Many rhythms were played and many smiles were had! Everyone had a chance to play different drums/hand instruments and the kids enjoyed being circle leader.
We want to extend a special thank you to the Weston branch of the BCL and the Friends of the Library. Without the Friends of the Library we would not have been able to deliver this free program to the community.
Contact us to bring this and other programs to your local library branch!
A perfect drum circle? Just might be with these highly energetic and receptive freshmen music majors at FIU’s School of Music. In the Wertheim Performing Art Center, everyone was turned up to 11 and we had a fantastic time with rhythm games and drum jams! Since these students are always chasing perfection in their music, they took this opportunity to de-stress and just go with the rhythm. Participant focus included team building, reducing stress, and having fun.
We’d like to thank the admin at FIU for letting us bring our program to these budding musicians!

Two back to back indoor drumming sessions with Camp Zion in Pompano were just a blast! Kids enjoyed the rhythm games and controlling the drum circle volume. Learning leadership, teamwork, and rhythm without breaking a sweat!
Engaging activities during the drum circle:
- Icebreakers – the facilitator starts everyone drumming right off the bat through activities that are designed to elicit smiles, giggles, and outright laughter.
- Drum Jam! – participants learn to listen to, play together and support each other as a group. They also have the opportunity to lead the group by utilizing signals to control the volume level and the groups playing.
- Interactive games – participants focus on social skills and nonverbal communication skills through games that encourage teamwork. During these games we utilize props such as Boomwhackers percussion tubes, egg shakers, balls, and a crowd favorite, the ‘magic wand.’
- Emotional connections – the workshops often end with participants expressing their feelings on the drum by connecting with a specific memory or goal. They then get an opportunity to share their experiences and what they’ve learned – plus do one more group drum roll for one last opportunity to make noise!
