Drum Circle Experience at the Folk School in St. Louis March 27

Near St. Louis? Join our new "Drum Circle Experience" at The Folk School of KDHX starting March 27th. If you’re interested in starting a drumming program, or facilitating drum circles for your organization or group, (kids, seniors, special needs, spiritual, schools, healing, at risk, the general public, & etc.) This will be a part of it also. Or, just just jam along, and learn to play the djembe and/or doumbek drum with us in a comfortable environment.

Hand drumming is something you can enjoy for the rest of your life. Even if you have never touched a drum before in your life, & think you have no rhythm - if you have a heartbeat, you can learn to play & have fun doing it very quickly. A few pointers on hand technique, ways to get the various sounds, & away we go jammin’ playing various rhythms from around the world. Various hand drums are provided, or you can bring your own.

The “Drum Circle Experience” 8 week course begins March 27th 8pm at The Folk School, 3323 Washington Ave, in Saint Louis. There’s a 10% discount for early enrollment by March 11th. It’s located near Grand Center in the mid-town arts district.

“The mission of the Folk School of KDHX is to build community through music.” And that’s what we’re going to do. As many of you know, 88.1 FM is a great radio station that supports the arts & independent musicians. They do a lot of positive work in our community. Check out all the other classes The Folk School offers as well. Guitar, fiddle, banjo, & lots more. See them all here: folkschoolstl.org

So, if you are new to hand drumming, or an experienced musician interested in hand drums, if you’re looking to start a drumming program for your group, facilitating drum circles, or just bring the fun & healing of group drumming to yourself or others – this is for you.

This first course I’m offering is something new to the Folk School. If at least 5 people sign up for it, there’s a good chance there will be more in the future. It would be good for us, and good for the community. Hope to see you March 27th!
