What makes a Rhythm Circle fun?
“The Community Rhythm Circle is a fun, entry-level learning experience that is accessible to anyone who wants to participate. Drum circle participants express themselves collectively using a chorus of tuned drums, percussion, and vocals to create a musical song together having a great time.” – Arthur Hull, founder of Village Music Circles
- Drum circles are inter-generational family fun. Children, parents and grandparents alike feel the excitement, bonding, and satisfaction of making in-the-moment music together.Drumming is energizing for participants, and spectators, too. People leave the EXPLORE! Rhythm Jam happy, upbeat, and ready to enjoy even more of what your Festival or Fair has to offer.
- Drum circles offer a participatory “I can do it !” experience ” Participants may wonder, “Do I have rhythm? Will I feel awkward? Can I contribute to our community song?” Guided by our make-rhythm-easy facilitation, they learn to express their innate rhythm and natural ability to lead and follow. They leave with a boosted sense of creativity, community and empowerment, able to explore other festival offerings with deeper engagement.Drum circles are FUN! The offer a unique experience that spawns word-of-mouth promotion for your event.
Explore! Rhythm uses rhythm to create fun community building experience used effectively in a variety of environments for relaxation and stress release, refinement of motor skills, creative expression, enhancement of self-confidence and the dissolving of perceived barriers between individuals and the group.

“How does the drum help to relieve stress? There are numerous ways this occurs. When people drum, they are generally having fun. It is difficult to be in a playful mode and be stressed at the same time.”
– Robert Lawrence Friedman, author,
from “The Healing Power of the Drum”
