Any and all percussion instruments can be used in a Drum Circle. In our experience of drumming with groups from various backgrounds, we have realised that hand drums like Djembes, Congas, Bongos and Frame Drums along with bass drums, work as the best drum circle drums to use. Any instrument that involves gross motor movements as opposed to finer or more subtle movements will work better. Since you will be working with newbies and first-time drummers, drums that are louder will work better than softer instruments. The more experienced your group is, the more will you be able to experiment with a true mix of drums of all sizes and shapes.
This course is targeted at anyone who would like to express or learn something new about oneself through a hands-on and experiential way. Having said this, if you belong to one of the professions listed below, this intensive course is even more suited for YOU!

What is a Drum Circle?
A drum circle is an activity where a group of people come together in a circle and, led by a facilitator, drum, sing and create music together using a wide range of percussion instruments.
In the words of the father of the modern day ‘Drum Circle’ movement, Arthur Hull: “Drum Circle participants express themselves collectively by using a chorus of tuned drums, percussion, and vocals to create a musical song together while having a great time.”
Who or What is a Drum Circle Facilitator?
A facilitator is someone who is a catalyst, someone who brings out the best in a group. Using group drumming as a medium, a facilitator helps bring about an outcome (such as learning, productivity, or communication) by providing indirect or unobtrusive assistance, guidance, or supervision.
Where all can I use a Drum Circle?
A drum circle can be organised in any situation where there are people bound with a common cause and there is an objective to be communicated. Group drumming has been used in corporate training settings, with special needs groups, kids, adolescents and even geriatric groups to communicate objectives such as teamwork, confidence, potential enhancement and stress-reduction to name a few.
