There are many benefits of drumming… improved health and well-being, stress reduction, increase of killer cell activity, anxiety reduction, increased self esteem, and a new connection to and understanding of music and other cultures. But the greatest benefit of drumming is the incredible sense of happiness and joy that comes from a fun, failure-free learning environment and a community of kindred spirits. We encourage you to join us and experience the benefits of drumming for yourself.


Happy… “Enjoying, showing, or marked by pleasure, satisfaction, or joy”
