Chris Ramirez is one of those patient, veteran musicians who knows how to effortlessly extract the very best out of students. He performs and teaches a broad range of drum styles that always makes you want to get up out of your seat and dance-while you’re still mastering his technique. For me, it’s been nonstop fun!

I’ve hired Chris with Freedom Drum Circles a few times and at various institutions to do community building, to create fun and interactive experiences, to lead alternative drum circle focused worship sessions and as an ice breaker. He is gifted educator, an empathetic, insightful, patient, and caring individual, a super experienced percussionist and group facilitator, easy to work with, communicative, and very professional. Not to mention he comes with super nice drums that are fun to play and sound incredible. Don’t sleep on an opportunity to use Freedom Drum Circles, and if you can, find a way to weave them into your program. Chris’ drum circles are always a highlight of my programmatic year. This is the exact kind of activity that speaks to all people indiscriminately. Music, and more specifically, drumming is a powerful tool that binds all people in the same way as a smile. Freedom Drum Circles masterfully gives participants access to approach and use this tool and will unify/bond any group of people.

I was referred to Chris by the drum circle in North Hollywood. The gentleman on the phone told me that Chris is the best, when you need to conduct a drum circle off site.
I called Chris before the holidays. He was very responsive. Provided me with his cell phone and emaill address to communicate. You can tell, over the phone, that he has been this a thousand times, and in a professional manner.
On the day of the drum circle at my house. He arrived early to set-up. He brought in a good variety of drums and shakers and bell instruments. He talked with everyone in the team, to get a sense of the group vibe.
He was excellent in getting little kids to adults involved in the music making process. Everyone had a great time.
I highly recommend Chris, if you need a drum circle leader, he is the MAN!
