Join us for a fun morning drum circle activity with Andrew Moreno. Andrew will have about 15 different hand drums out and available for youths or adults ages 10+ to learn how to play. Children ages 8-9 may also join, but must be accompanied by an adult the entire time.

The set-up will be along the Menomonee River Parkway, on the other side of the bike path from the soccer fields – check out this map for more info.

Chairs will be provided for participants. Others may wish to bring your own chairs/blankets for seating.

UPDATE: Because of the expected heat, cold bottles of water and free WMV water bottles will be given out at the event! Free of charge.

More from Andrew:

I have been playing drums for over 20 years. Throughout those 20 years I have been in bands from a wide variety of genres including metal, hip-hop, jazz, fusion, world-fusion, and electronic music. This has allowed me to really expand as a musician, so when playing a certain genre I can take elements that have I learned in those different genres to make my playing as unique as possible. My mother has been a huge inspiration and support in my life to be the person that I am today, and for allowing me to play drums at the expense of her ears. 😉 In supporting me in the things that I like to do such as playing drums, I was allowed to truly express myself. I truly believe that our youth today need to express themselves more than anything else, and I want to continue to be an inspiration to the youth to express themselves in the ways they need to, as long as their express is not hurting themselves or others.

Feedback is fabulous! I encourage you to leave some.
