“When people gather to drum, the world is a better place!”
~ Babatudi Olatunji

What a great facilitator/teacher you are. You inspire us all with new rhythms and new ways of feeling and hearing the rhythms. The vocal exercise last week actually had me seeing the rhythms inside my head, like gentle flames of energy moving around my body. It is a joy for us to be there. ~ Heather

Karin, I wanted to let you know that my son and I really enjoyed the drumming circle. It was fun, creative and educational. Thanks so much. Hope to see you again sometime. ~ Susan

Brilliant class yesterday! I liked the combo of drumming, rhythm, voice and I'm looking forward to the next one, too. ~ Iris

Had a great time tonight. It’s the vibrations… that’s the feeling you take away…body and soul is vibrating with the rhythms by the end of the class. And you just want more. It’s a great feeling! ~ Carmel

Thank you again. You are the epitome of expressing “the music that dances within us.”
~ Daniel

Thank you for yesterday's workshop. It encompassed every word that each of us spoke in what we hoped to get out of it. That was my first experience, and feel that the circle is my best way of learning. Please keep me informed so that I may do more in the future.~ Mary
