Cameron Tummel's Drum Tiki

Musical Opportunity to Revitalize Your Tribe

Imagine yourself playing drums 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 and the matriarch.

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 and playful, 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 10 - 50 participants and we play together for an hour. Happy to accommodate larger groups or longer drumming sessions.

Camreon Tummel's Drum Tiki based in Ventura county and available for live events throughout southern and central California.

Regional and international bookings available with sufficient planning and coordination.

Multiple-day sequential curriculum includes social and emotional learning, development of musical skills and drumming techniques, and can include Student Ensemble performance and/or Family Night event finale.

Residencies booked on consecutive days or as many days as possible per week. (Prefer to avoid booking once per week, due to likelihood of spending instructional time reviewing previous material and unlikeliness of calendar availability.)

Special Offer: Family Night event or Student Ensemble performance is free of charge if your campus books a residency of ten days or longer.

No experience necessary, all instruments provided, everyone plays.

Unique curriculum for students with special needs.

Most multiple-day residencies are booked six to twelve months in advance.
