Group Drumming Circles for ALL ages
Facilitated by Marianne Riddle

ADVENTURES IN RHYTHM offers a perfect blend of group drumming and rhythmic learning activities, instrument exploration & listening experiences - all which support overall wellness. Research has shown that group drumming benefits emotional health, releases stress and supports wellness. For children, rhythm supports physical and cognitive development while promoting brain stimulation.

Holding the classroom space as a safe and supportive environment, your experienced facilitator, Marianne Riddle offers a structured, yet flexible family music program where all levels of learning are supported. She founded ADVENTURES IN RHYTHM in 2009 and has been a drummer for over 30 years. Weaving mindfulness into the circle, Mz Marianne integrates meditation into each drumming circle so participants leave the experience feeling grounded and relaxed.

No prior musical experience is required and all instruments provided. Each class runs approx. 55 minutes in length.
