“RHYTHM AWARENESS” ™ DRUMMING CIRCLES:
Gathering people together for sharing a fun musical experience is powerful. Something uplifting happens when we come together to create a sense of community expression through drumming and rhythm.
We create a special type of "Rhythm Magic" when we communicate through a rhythm language, compelling us to tune into each other in a new exciting manner. This collaboration “re-powers” us to unify our individual talents. Soundformation is committed to recreating this spirit of musical connection. Our Rhythm Awareness Drum circles:
- Emphasize fun and creative expression.
- Welcome anyone to participate, with the belief that everyone brings their own unique musical gift to the group.
- Focus on the quality of the interaction between the participants.
- Enhance “creative listening” skills.

“Thank you soooo much for your professionalism and talent you shared with our Summer Art Camp 2002 Campers!! I have so enjoyed your assistance and teaching with our students. You are truly gifted and wonderful with the kids. They seem to light up so much when you arrive. I too feel happy, alive and overjoyed seeing you. Perhaps it’s your peaceful, calm and spiritual nature that seems to evoke this from all that meet you. I thank you again for sharing your gifts with all of us at the Los Angeles Arts Academy. Your Percussion/Drum circles have been a magnificent and very positive addition to our camp experience."
