Welcome to the Drum Circle
What is the Drum Circle?
Experience community! The Newport Community Drum Circle is an
ad-hoc rhythm jam session and communal celebration, now in its
second year at Don Davis Park, in Nye Beach - hosted by Chandler
It is free and family-friendly (no drugs or alcohol); all ages, skill
levels, and acoustic instruments are welcome. There are usually
drums or small percussion instruments to borrow for those who don't
have one (please bring extra drums, if you have them).
The drum circle is facilitated, but loosely structured; a small portion
of each session is reserved for instruction in djembe and other drum
basics and for learning new rhythms.
We typically attract from one dozen to three dozen participants -
both locals and visitors - along with lots of beach strollers who stop
to enjoy the music. Regular participants range in age from toddlers
to nonagenarians, and represent every socio-economic stratum.
