I will work with you and your staff to create a customized drum circle, drumming lessons, and/or teach drum circle facilitation training to meet your needs.


Dr. Hammesfahr observed my work for over 3 years. He referred many of his patients to me for drumming lessons. The results, and improvements of the patients in just a matter of months were stunning.


PARC is an adult special needs population. I worked for them on a regular basis, and helped get the group out into the public drumming at various venues. Many of their functions were closed to the public, so this was a pretty big accomplishment. It culminated with an Earth Day performance including the local drumming community up on a band stage in front of a crowd of 100's. Seeing their beaming smiles, was one of the most meaningful days of my life.



This was the Great American teach In. A day of drum circles with kids (K through 6th grade) I've worked a lot in both private and public schools. Both as special events, and as ongoing programs.

Drum Circle Workshop at the Dunedin Fine Art Center 2006 - 2007


I got the idea, and started this weekly drum circle at the Dunedin Brewery back in 2005. I organized, promoted, and facilitated it for over 2 years. It still goes on to this day, some 9 years later. It makes me happy that I had a lasting effect on the community. Many night spots, pubs, and cafe's are struggling to find working formulas for their slower weeknights. This might be the ideal kind of ongoing event for you. They loved the results.
