Class Topic: Drumming Up Joy During Covid



In this class we will drum together to help you increase your well being by boosting your immune system , body, mind, and spirit. 

Learn to place your joyous intention into rhythm, be inspired by Rabbi Nachman of Breslov’s famous saying ("It is a great mitzvah to live in the state of happiness”), and explore guided imagery with drumming.

NO music experience is necessary.
