Group drumming is a fun, exciting and memorable team building experience!
Team Building through Group Drumming
We offer a fun and participatory drum and rhythm circle experience for your team. Groups learn to play simple rhythms on hand drums and to create their own unique soundscapes by adding shakers, rain-sticks and percussion instruments in a relaxed environment. Engaging, interactive rhythmic activities led by experienced facilitators offer multiple benefits to your team:
"Great teaching! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the drumming!"

Dianne and her team were great to work with and helped to create an amazing experience at the WRCPC retreat! They created a safe space, while at the same time created a very fun and creative atmosphere. I got a lot of very positive feedback from council members on how much they enjoyed the drumming. First chance to bring Dianne and the team back, we will!

Group Drumming Programs
The AIM team highly recommends the program: “Dianne and Samantha have been coming to Adults In Motion (AIM) for the past couple years to do a Drum and Rhythm Circle with our participants. At first we were unsure of what our participants were capable of, however with the assistance of the instructors, our participants were quickly able to follow instructions and we were completely blown away. Our participants are always so eager to have our Drum and Rhythm Circle and have learned to listen carefully, be patient, follow the leaders and work together as a team. The participants look forward to drumming every month as it has become such a special part of our program. The instructors' enthusiasm and smiles are so contagious and we are extremely thankful to have them come to AIM! We highly recommend this AIMazing service!”
