What’s Happening at Sticks and Stones Farm

POSTED: June 22nd, 2014

Saturday  Oct 4

Drum Circle      7-9 pm

$15

This will be a hybrid of a drum class & a drum circle.

Each month will be something different. Mark will always start off by focusing on the basics of hand drumming and playing in a drum circle group.

He’ll explore traditional W. African rhythms with you and other drumming methodologies while learning how to play/listen/create together. Then you get to put what we learned into practice and see where we can go!

No prior drumming experience is required or expected. Beginners will learn how to ride on two wheels, experienced players can push their boundaries.

Please contact Mark to register  (203) 500 3818 or mark@drummingspirit.com and let him know if you need to borrow a drum for the evening

Upcoming drum circle dates with Mark at Sticks and Stones, the first Saturday of each month :Aug 2nd, Sept 6th and Oct 4th

Bring a friend and come have fun finding your inner rhythm!
