Spring is here – finally! Come celebrate with the first-ever Family Drum Circle at TIFEM!
For thousands and thousands of years, people have gathered with drums – as long as we’ve been making music! Hand drumming can help strengthen communities, increase communication and listening, and it can even be beneficial to your health. Most importantly, it’s just plain FUN!!!
The joy of hand drumming is infectious – come feel the rhythm as we ring in Spring on Saturday, May 17! Open to all ages – 3 to 99! No previous experience necessary – drop-ins welcome. Drums and other percussion instruments provided. See more at: http://enjoymusictoronto.com/
