Music is a universal language, and drumming is one of the most accessible ways for diverse groups of people to make music together.
Drumming encourages teamwork and builds skills in listening, communication, and leadership.
Our goal is to help people build stronger communities through making music together in the classroom, at corporate team-building events, and at community gatherings.
The interest in drum circles as a way of community gathering has been growing rapidly all over the world and is happening in many settings.
Drum circles are coordinated by a facilitator in order to help the group have fun making music together and no musical experience is necessary in order to participate.
This multi-generational, multi-cultural activity encourages listening and relating to each other without words and is really a re-connection to the ancient wisdom found in all cultures about the beauty and importance of community gatherings.
Drumatic Innovation drum circles can be extremely effective for corporations, companies, and small businesses that want to enhance the generation of new ideas and better team work.
Drumming is not about exceptional performance.
It’s about fun, personal expression and satisfaction.
Recreational drumming philosophy emphasizes that the student is not expected to become proficient on their instrument, but to relax and enjoy the experience of making music together in a group.
For those wanting to learn to drum, Drumatic Innovation is also home to Sandpoint’s most experienced hand drum teacher.
As well as providing students with djembe drum lessons, drum tuning and drum repair are also available.
As well as community circles open to the public, professionally facilitated drum circle events are being used in schools as an educational tool; are taking place in multi-national corporations and governments for morale building, in health care facilities with the well-elderly promoting senior activity, cancer patients, recovering addicts, alzheimer patients …and the list grows as more people experience the stress-relieving, positive effects of self-expression in the creative and friendly environment of a rhythm circle.
When people discover that they can collectively produce a good sound without any musical training or background, they start to realize that they can be more effective at work by putting their heads together and working as a team.
Also, drumming uses the brain in a different pattern than the linear thought process that is usually needed in the work environment.
Drum circle events brings the group to a more open mental and psychological process. The creative side of the brain becomes free to improvise, which can be carried over to the production of new and better ways of working.
An excellent tool to kick off any kind of brain storming session, and optimize the quantity and quality of new ideas. I provide the group with the tools they need to figure out the task.
