In the last week I have mentioned drum circles several times. My friend, Kat, did a wonderful job explaining the differences between music therapy and drum circle facilitation. Please take a moment to read this insightful blog! Drum Circle Facilitation and Music Therapy. It includes a video of Bongo Barry – a special man who is greatly missed!

My music therapy sessions are generally filled with much singing and lots of percussion. My percussion “regulars” are paddle drums, frame drums, shape drums, a buffalo drum, egg head shakers, jingle bells, and rhythm sticks. I also love using my boom whackers and some tambourines. Amazingly, people of all ages know what to do with these instruments and are rarely shy when playing them.
