NO DRUM CIRCLE FRIDAY MARCH 20th
WELCOME TO CREATIVE RHYTHMS DRUM CIRCLE at Liverpool Art Center
Facilitated rhythm events inspire community connections and creative expression. Enjoy a mix of relaxing and energetic music making activities guided by a certified and experienced drum circle facilitator. Plenty of drum are available along with small percussion and even vocals too! No skills required and beginners are always very warmly welcomed.
What is Drum Circle? The official definition of a drum circle is: “…any group of people playing hand-drums and percussion in a circle. They are distinct from a drumming group or troupe in that the drum circle is an end in itself rather than preparation for a performance. They can range in size from a handful of players to circles with thousands of participants.” (Wikipedia)
**IMPORTANT TO KNOW: Please remove any jewelry on the wrists and hands so there’s no damage to your sparkles or to the instruments.
The LAC Drum Circle: We just drum! A facilitator guides the group through some basics and welcomes any beginner with simple ways to keep the heart beat flowing. The LAC Drum Circle Community has been drumming together every month since 2007(over a decade!). The size group tranges from 20-30ppl monthly. A percentage of the monthly circle is brand new to drumming. We love to relax, rejuvenate and ride the rhythm. Sometimes we start with a planned rhythm and everyone learns a new beat, but mostly we allow the night to take us all on a fun journey of expressing our uniqueness through rhythm. It's meditative, relaxing and powerfully rejuvenating.
Are you brand new to drumming? No worries. We will guide you through every step. And if you want a lesson before drum circle begins, we offer beginner drum class right before our monthly drum circle.
New to drum circles? Please take some time to review Drum Circle Etiquette.
