Drum Circle Classes

Drum circles are not just about drumming. They are so much more. They are an effective tool for health and wellness and a breath of fresh air in our fragmented stressed out world. Research is pouring out pointing to Therapeutic Drum Circles as a powerful option for stress reduction and that is good news given that stress is the precursor for mental and physical illness. They are also a great tool in cooperative team-building and community. But, above all, it's a lot of fun! Anyone can participate. Instruments are provided, but you are more than welcome to bring your own.

Beginning Piano Classes

Have you ever wanted to play the piano? The Simply Music piano method will get you playing great sounding music from your very first lessons! Simply Music is a playing-based (as opposed to reading-based) method that puts the emphasis on playing. We start by finding the patterns and shapes found naturally in music. This gets you playing. Then we apply those same patterns and shapes to the "theory" of music. Come try it out for yourself!
