1301 South Main St., Blacksburg, VA

No previous drumming experience needed. You have a heartbeat, so you have a rhythm to bring to the circle. We will have some percussion for individuals to use, but if you have a drum, rattle, shaker, or any other percussive instrument, please bring. The more the merrier.
A facilitated drum circle is a guided rhythmic experience intended to build a musical community focused on mutual support, unity, and a sense of well-being. In contrast to a community drum circle, this facilitated drum circle is designed to flow from a warm up exercise, then some practice using simple phrases with a focus on Arabic and Mediterranean rhythms, finishing with an improvisational drum jam. This event is ideal for those who have never attended a drum circle before but have always been interested and curious. Of course, those with drumming experience are always welcome as well!
