Drum Circle Facilitation: Building Community Through Rhythm by Arthur Hull

 Village Music Circles utilizes the Drum Circle Facilitation techniques developed by Arthur Hull.


In 20+ hours of training, participants will have extensive practice opportunities in the facilitation techniques and the skills needed to lead a drum circle event for a variety of populations. Group instruction and discussions combine with small group activities using movement, voice, musical instruments, and improvisational rhythm games. Critique and feedback are an important part of the learning process.


Opportunities for networking with other DCFs of many cultures, backgrounds and experience levels provides stimulation and inspiration to developing facilitators.


The Basic Facilitator Training is an intensive high-powered, dynamic experience. Participants must commit to the entire weekend and be ready to work hard and learn a lot — while having loads of fun doing so.
