“My 8 yr. old son is literally taking off with the drums under Mr. Phil’s instruction!! And my daughter is learning guitar at his school too. Great place to learn music no matter what age!” Jeanne A.
Drum, Guitar, Piano and Voice lessons take place in a professional recording studio using two acoustic drum sets and choosing from hundreds of sound tracks minus drums. Lessons include all drums techniques and musical styles, playing side by side and taking moments to interject at the appropriate time. Soon enough, we will play together through entire tracks and develop flawless habits!
One major advantage of any type of music lessons is that it teaches our kids the basic principle of work = reward. You must make the time to develop skills that later others will admire. It builds great self esteem because they have achieved (through hard work) something that just anyone cannot do. Play an instrument and be cool! Even if they never choose to be a musician as a career, we’ve seen many make extra spending money entertaining people and being well paid and noticed for their efforts rather than a menial task job making minimum wage, while in high school or college. They can make at least $ as much as other teens and young adults on just the weekend, than working a part-time job at the hamburger joint or bookstore all week long! And be the coolest doing it!
Simply put a drum circle or rhythm circle is a group of people from a few to many sitting with chairs arranged in a circle experiencing the spontaneous creation of music on a variety of drums and percussion instruments. In such a situation, each person is able to express themselves through their individual instrument while simultaneously participating as part of a larger whole. Our groups can range from just a few people, up to a dozen individuals.
Why A Circle?
Besides having a great deal of fun, a drum circle can be very therapeutic. It teaches a sense of community where people can communicate with no words.
Just show up and play drums! We have a large collection of hand drums, shakers, wood blocks, gourds and many other simple drum instruments provided for you. Of course, you are welcome and encouraged to bring your own if you have it. We have several drum circle classes scheduled per week. Just call to find one convenient for you!
