Mid Michigan Drum Circle - Jam Invites

What's New?  Here's what's new...
A community drum circle in the United States is a noisy and fun, family friendly event, where people come together in order play rhythms together. The participants sit is a circle of chairs so everyone is equal. The drum circle play percussion instruments in an informal, collaborative setting. The participants don't need musical experience and can begin at a level that works for them.
The main objective is to share rhythm and get in tune with each other and themselves. A drumming circle provides an opportunity to connect with a group of other like-minded people.
Mid Michigan Drum Circle invites adults and mature youngsters to join them in their weekly jams- likely held in Midland or Bay City. We have spare drums/percussion for you to borrow- if desired. There is no charge to be a member of the Mid Mich Drum Circle.
Look us up at Facebook: , or email
