  • Drumming Basics

    Our group prides itself on being composed of mature individuals who respect each other's desire to play individually and as a part of a group.   We offer the shared development of rhythms. 

    We welcome everyone who ever had an urge to hear or play hand drums!

    Our group is a mix of people with varying skills but who all have a desire to play.  We meet at the New Hartford / Sherillbrook Town Park or the Unitarian Universalist Church on the corner of Higby / Genesee.   During the summer we meet the third Saturday of each month at 2:00pm.  Click here for   Fall/Winter dates. If you are interested in joining us email us at the following email address

    We have a whole range of different drums and a variety of people, so grab your drums, didge or any other instruments!!

    Everyone has a different way to play, sometimes we stand and sometimes we sit.  Drum circles are a great way to learn new ways to play and little tricks that make drumming fun.
