Workshops for Senior Citizens

We provide an inspirational, highly recommended and successful facilitated drum circle program for seniors at all functioning levels. Numerous recent studies strongly indicate that participation in activities such as ensemble drumming diminish the effects of senile dementia, and may even prevent the onset of such disorders.  There are many benefits to creating music in a group, and it is widely accepted by teachers, youth workers, music therapists, and health practitioners as being an effective way to encourage life skills and develop confidence and self-esteem. The physical exercise of playing the drum is extremely beneficial, especially for helping with coordination and concentration.  Participants report improvement in general coordination, walking, speaking, sleeping, and thought process, and experience a boost in self-esteem and overall confidence.  We use a variety of different instruments, including the djembe hand drum, which contributes many different sounds and opportunities within the group. Drumming is fun and interesting, providing opportunities to connect with individuals who do not usually respond to other programs. To get out pricing for this year please click here.

“It has been amazing for me to witness the personal transformation, expansion of consciousness, and community building that occurs when Steve sets the rhythm Friday’s at Drumming! After about 10 minutes you can see the joy in resident’s eyes as they start to “get it” and are playing a drum rhythm, making music (some for the first time)-it’s really exciting! Research has recently showed a wide range of therapeutic benefits from healing, self-expression, reducing stress, physical healing, immune boosting to reintegration of self. This is a powerful tool for our residents to connect with their own spirit and with the group and Steve orchestrates each connection and doesn’t miss a beat! The residents have said they feel the effects as the beat goes on long after the session is over. Empowering!!”
