Giving Tree Music Drum Circle @ Jan Platt Library

Hi !

We are having a very special event at Jan Platt Library : a Giving Tree Music Drum Circle on Monday, July 18th from 3:30 - 4:30. Connect our Global Community through Music! Drumming in a group can spark joy in an individual. We provide the drums; all you need to bring is yourself. Sing, drum, dance and laugh as we explore the magic of community and teamwork. We will learn traditional songs and stories, and how to "talk" to each other with our drums.

Check out this awesome Giving Tree Music Drum Circle video:
