about community drumming...
Today is your day to paint life in bold colors;set today's rhythm with your heart-drum;walk today's march with courage;create today as your celebration of life.- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
Health and wellness researchers have invested a lot of money, time and resources to arrive at the same wisdom that's been at the core of drumming culture for a very long time. Drumming has healthy rewards. Of course, at this point, I could have you reading quotes, research facts and analysis, compiled from verifiable source references.
(Trust me, the preponderance of evidence is overwhelming)
Instead, I invite you to witness the effects for yourself. Join us at our Carlsbad Beach Drum Circle.
Triangle Park at Frazee Beach in Carlsbad Village (intersection of Carlsbad Blvd. and Pine Avenue).
Free Community Event! Open to all ages and levels!
Whether you're listening to an internationally renowned band or a local bar band, it's the synergy of the participants that makes the collective experience. When community drumming is introduced into a group of participants, a transformational magic takes over. This is not magic of the hocus-pocus brand, this is tapping into cause and effect through acts of communality that stimulates the nervous system and results in participants realizing their connection to one another. Within the collective voice, every participant has a role (part) that supports the group. Self expression is emphasized through free form instrumental improvisation and vocal expression. With seasoned stewardship, the group will reap profound rewards while enjoying the experience of a cooperative environment.
As facilitators, we guide this process by using Traditional Cultural Drumming (®TCD) techniques and Body Pulse / Tempo Rhythm (®BP/TR)

'but, I'm not musically inclined' :(
Don't have to be. * Relax * You're with friends.
No prior playing experience is necessary to participate in the workshop. We show you rhythms using ®TCD techniques.., help you identify your natural rhythm using ®BP/TR.., provide indigenous instruments for you to play.. and encourage improvisation.
I got my acoustic in the car. Can I bring it in?
What's taking you so long. Get it!!! hey..got a harmonica?
Although we have drumming at the core of our workshop, all instrumentation is welcomed.
Can I just sing or dance?
It is commonly held that the first instrument is voice and the first art is dance.
If you are inspired to vocalize or contribute with dance there is space for you, as well.
Are you ready to get started...?
