Swanage Community Drum Circle meet to allow you to discover and explore your inner musician. It often takes only a few minutes for a beginner from first touching a drum or percussion instrument to be fully immersed in the excitement of connecting with others, creating music rhythms as a group, using hand drums, world percussion and body percussion. All participants can experience the thrill of playing together whilst realising the importance of their own part as they play and support the group song.
For regular updates, and inspirational curated drum content, follow us on Facebook.
Join us at one of our drum circles for fun and friendly community drumming.
We hope you are safe and well.
