What is a Community Drum Circle

The VMC Global method is a clearly defined process of facilitating a group of individuals through the joys of participatory rhythmic music, in an inclusive & empowering way that maximises the groups musical potential. It is used by thousands of facilitators across the world in a wide range of settings, that include community recreation programs, school music programs, aged-care wellness programs, mental-health support programs and corporate development programs; to name a few.

One Day VMC Global Drum-Circle Facilitation Introductory Seminars

Rhythm2Recovery run a small number of introductory one-day seminars that provide a taster of the drum-circle facilitator training experience. These workshops do not provide an accredited level of expertise for participants, but aim to showcase the potential of the VMC Global model, in a fun and enjoyable way for individuals and services contemplating investing more seriously in this work as part of their future development.

The method developed by VMC enables the facilitator to bring people together ofall ages, genders and backgrounds in an uplifting, empowering and bonding experience through participatory rhythmic music. It is perfect for people working to build community with diverse populations and can be used in a wide range of service areas including schools, aged care andmental health.

It is also a useful addition for facilitators who have trained in the moretherapeutically focused Rhythm2Recovery Facilitator Training Program.

No previous musical experience is necessary.

We welcome enquiries from organisations and conference coordinators who are interested in the potential of the drum-circle to further the social development aims of their work, and are seeking a brief introduction to the process.
