Many fortune 500 companies, universities, schools, art and cultural communities, health industries and  rehab-recovery organizations have embraced this unique approach as an activity that elevates and unites the spirit of all participants.   

                   “ It is not about successful performance, it is about successful living.”
              “ It is not about music technique, it is about self expression and team spirit.”
 
                No mistakes ! No errors ! No pressure ! 

As stated by Christopher Ramirez, founder of Freedom Drum Circles, "Everyone was born with a unique song in their heart. As a facilitator, I assist them in finding their song and help them share it with passion in a group setting." 

Evidence based research has revealed that only 7% of the United States population plays music; 85% express a desire to play recreational music.
