Drum Circles at Pineview Cottage - Assisted Living in Harbor Springs

Northern Michigan Drum Village took the magic of the drums to Pineview Cottage - a premier assisted living community in Harbor Springs on April 11th. Two drum circles were facilitated that day. The first one was with the memory care residents. They really got into the drumming. Some residents preferred to use the shakers or tambourines, and some preferred the djembes (African hand drums). The staff really got into the djun-djuns.(larger African drums). A great group rhythm exploded right off the top of the 45 minute session. The second session was conducted with the assisted living residents. It was another hour of rhythm connection, fun and laughter as people explored the percussive instruments. So many felt energized after the drum circles and many smiles appeared.
