Musical Opportunity to Revitalize Your Tribe

Imagine yourself on a tropical island... Every island, every village, every member of the tribe has something to teach us. Learn the rhythms of the fisherman, the warrior, the healer, the matriarch. Drum together on a stress-free musical journey. Drum Tiki enables you to connect, play, and thrive.

Play-along drumming sessions for groups to connect and learn together. Games and metaphors structured for social and emotional skill development, stress reduction, (FUN,) and collaborative interactions. We provide all the instruments, decorations, and a professional facilitator. No musical experience necessary. Everyone plays.

Your unique Drum Tiki session is catered to the themes and goals you choose. Typical event includes 15 - 50 participants and we play together for an hour. Happy to accommodate larger groups or longer drumming sessions.

Drum Tiki based in Ventura county and available for events throughout southern and central California.
