What better way to close out the first annual Tree Festival in Metropolitan Park of downtown Jacksonville than a big drum circle? Festival attendees received free trees to plant while learning about the importance of trees in city planning, home value, and decreasing their utility bills.
We provided a community drum circle to end the festival on a high note. Both children and adults had a blast honing their playing skills while learning how drumming can encourage team-building and enhance overall wellness. Participants had the chance to lead the group in the “wave” (drumming-style) as well as volume cues. We ended the drum circle by playing a game that illustrates how when each person contributes just one beat to a rhythm, we can make magical music together!
We love helping you bring awareness to your festival or event through rhythm! If you’ve got a community or private event coming up that you’d like to add a little rhythm to, contact us!
JAR’s first event since we relocated to Jacksonville was a blast! We provided an after-school drumming program for students at the Alden Road Exceptional Student Center, which is affiliated with local Jacksonville organizations Hope Haven and Team Up.
- fun with Boomwhackers® and egg shakers
- rhythms about favorite pizza toppings and favorite cookies
- an energetic game called Rumble Ball.
Both students and staff had an awesome time, and had fun making up their own rhythms.

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!
