"It gets our people stimulated,...even the most confused person can drum simple rhythms...the inclusive nature of the circle is an aspect appealing to many...it boosts people's self esteem, as well as make them feel unified because everyone can participate."

"...thank you for the wonderful program that you provided for the Kids of the Kingdom Summer Camp.  As I stood in the doorway and watched the children drumming, I felt so good about what they were experiencing.  When I asked one of the children what she liked best about the day she said,"Playing the drums!  We each had a drum to play and it was really awesome!"

"Thank You!  You gave us the perfect gift.  Our evening of drumming was calming and exhilarating at the same time.
...reinforcing the great cathartic elements of group therapy, community, connection, right and left brain stimulation, support and self expression to name a few.
I appreciate the time that you provided for us and hope you could see how much it was enjoyed and valued.
Thanks again for helping us move through our healing.
