WHAT IS A GROUP DRUMMING PROGRAM?
A “Group Drumming Program” is a fun musical event that empowers people, unites, and heals. Participants play a drum or hand percussion together, often sitting in a circle. No musical experience is required as a professional facilitator provides the appropriate guidance for everyone. Common names for drumming programs include “facilitated drum circles” and “interactive rhythm events”. They are used in different settings which include community events, team building sessions, classrooms, wedding groups, and many therapeutic environments.
Group drumming programs have two inner workings that are amazing. First, these rhythmical events promote brainwave “entrainment”. This is when our brainwave frequencies attune to external rhythms we hear, usually engendering relaxation, wellbeing, and even excitement. Secondly, the deep sounds of bass drums and percussion reach our bodies not just our ears. These deep frequencies release tension in our muscles, including accumulated tension from stress. This is sometimes referred to as a “sonic vibrational massage” and it feels good.
