Drum Circles

Therapeutic Activity for Business or Leisure

As our hearts beat within us, rhythm is at the center of our very being. In the same way, drums connect us inside the circle of life. As wse create and share drum rhythms, we’re reminded that we are not alone; that we can know each other; that we can cope and learn and heal; that we can meet any challenge. 

The Memphis Symphony Orchetra Drum Circles are  powerful musical experiences that serve special needs and at-risk community groups.  The weekly program enables students and community members to participate in therapeutic drumming as a means to deal with life stresses and personal development challenges, helping participants through their personal healing process.  In addition, you can find Frank Shaffer, a MSO percussionist, form Drum Circles at the Memphis Oral School for the Deaf.  Through grants and a program called HealthRHYTHMS, Drum Circles also have taken place at Kemmons Wilson Family Center for Good Grief at the campus of Baptist Memorial Hospital-Collierville

MSO has certified therapeutic drumming facilitators, who have lead Drum Circles for V.A. Hospital patients, St. Jude staff, Youth Villages local schools, youth programs, and many other community groups.

"Drumming is something everyone loves to do.  It's more than fun though.  
It's an opportunity for kids to express themselves." - Marlon Foster | Knowledge Quest
