A community drum circle is an interactive musical experience for participants of all ages, backgrounds, and musical abilities. Drum circles create welcoming, accessible environments where people can come together to share musical and emotional experiences while simultaneously developing social skills, self-confidence, and a strengthened sense of community through music. Please join us for an interactive drumming experience led by Music for All faculty member, Matt Savage. All ages are welcome, no experience necessary!
