Drum for Joy

Instructor: Deb Bortscher

Group drumming is transformative.   It can also be a powerful way to connect mind, body and spirit.

Research has shown the many benefits Drumming offers in supporting the healing process.

Drumming has also been shown to improve mood, stimulate circulation, reduce stress and stimulate the activation of neuropathways for better brain function.

We are fortunate to have Deborah Bortscher facilitate the Drumming circles.  Deb creates a safe and supportive environment in which participants learn the fundamental techniques and rhythms along with exploring their individual creativity.  Drumming is a wonderful way to be ‘in the moment’ making music within the group.  No prior musical training is necessary to participate in this ‘hands on’ program.

Instruments are provided or bring your own.

Please note, our programs are designed for adults only.
