Drum Garden Rhythm & Percussion Playlist
Your First Drum Circle
You might choose to bring with you a hand drum (not traps / not a drum kit), a tambourine or other small percussion, homemade shakers, or sticks or claves. Many drum circles provide share-drums for newcomers. You might need to bring your own chair. Just ask questions before you head out! Drum folk are normally very happy to welcome and help newcomers.
The most important thing you can do is to know about drum circle etiquette. A few tips about etiquette can help to protect the drums from misuse, and it can protect everyone's fun and enjoyment too!
