Tuesday Stress Reliever: Join Our Community Drum Circle

We've Got Rhythm to Spare and Share
The East Hampton Public Library makes its Community Room available to area folks interested in joining with others in a community drum circle. Drum circle programs are scheduled on the first Tuesday of every month, in the library Community Room. All programs begin at 6:30 p.m.

What's a Drum Circle, You Ask?
A drum circle is a collaboratively self organized musical event; anyone can participate. People of all levels of musical expertise can join in the circle and share their rhythm and whatever drums and percussion they bring to the event. You don't have to be a drummer to participate; all you need is a willingness to make music; share your rhythmic spirit; and release some positive energy in the process.

Bring along your drum to the Tuesday programs or think creatively: play a plastic water bottle turned upside down with the neck cut off; shake a soda can with rocks in it; or hit two sturdy sticks together. All you really need to know how to do is form a circle and add your spirit to the rhythm of your community's drums.
