Drumming Classes for All Levels - Semi-Beginners to Pros!

African Energized Hand Drumming

DrumConnection Faculty, Instructor


Hand Drumming targets certain areas of the brain that lead to relaxation,  concentration and healing on many levels. Studies have shown that playing drums causes the brain's electric and chemical functions to charge and act upon the human body causing many types of healing. MRI and PET scans have shown that all musical activity helps, but drumming has the most effect.

  • We take the deeply rooted, genetic connection humans have with music and combine it with the time-honored tradition of many types of drumming. We focus on rhythms from Africa, Brazil, and Haiti and Cuba. Our universal love stems from the concept that drums are thought to be one of the oldest forms of music in the world and are a celebration of our own bodies and human ancestry.
