"Drum Garden" Theme

Adults (and tweens and teens with their adults welcome)

This theme is our pick for, especially day programs, but it is also perfect for social services organizations, small faculties, and others!  

These are exploratory, wellness and drum & percussion circle experiences, which include rhythm games, and more. They are great for self-esteem, stress relief, confidence-building, community-building, light exercise, and fun!

Your guests will be introduced to percussion that may be new to them, and they can try them. But sometimes, you may end up finding out that your guests have their own drumming back-stories!

*** These workshops will always be different, and I like to throw in some surprises. ***

This workshop theme requires the most "stuff" and moving the stuff. We can offer only a handful of them per season. Don't delay in requesting Drum Garden!

- Inquire / Request Form-

Open the Google Form below. (All workshop booking info is in the form. You can view it without sending it, and your email will not be collected. It is not a collaborative form. Your answers are private.)



If you would like to request a workshop, please do fill out and submit the form.

We cannot meet with you or discuss booking for you via email or on the phone - until you send this form. We've learned that it creates chaos the other way.

There's no chaos - just a form. 

I hope to work with you!   :)
