“The language of rhythm is universal. The goal is empowerment, connection, and inspiration for people in all walks of life.”
Music reflects life. Playing in a percussion ensemble requires teamwork, concentration, discipline, and finely tuned listening skills, as well as self-expression.
The drum is an ancient tool for building unity in the community and focusing collective energy. It has been used as a form of communication for hundreds of years in many different cultures.
Drums teach us the importance of diversity and community where every individual’s part is important to make the whole complete.
They teach us humility, passion, and patience.
They require multi-tasking, engaging both sides of the brain as well as the heart and spirit.
They stimulate us to think and act “outside the box.”
Drums build self-esteem, relieve stress, and sometimes provide a much needed voice for people who learn and express themselves in different ways.
Drums move energy. When we focus that collective energy on achieving specific goals, the effect is truly transformational and expansive.
