Free Duquesne University Drum Circle

  • Mary Pappert School of Music 600 Forbes Ave Pittsburgh, PA, 15219 United States (map)

This is a community drum circle hosted by the Duquesne University Music Therapy program. We'll begin drumming at 7pm and go until 8:30pm. We place an emphasis on building community, listening and playing together, and making an enjoyable and musical experience for everyone. It's a safe place to come out and try new things from picking up a new instrument and playing for the first time to playing with a different level of awareness and connection to the other group members. This is a facilitated circle and our goal is to guide the group to be the most musical and safe environment for everyone that it can be! 

This is the final drum circle of the semester before we take a summer break. The students have been doing an amazing job facilitating this semester - come out and support them as they lead the circle one more time!

We'll be meeting in our usual location, room 322 of the Mary Pappert School of Music on Duquesne University's campus. As always, the event is free and we have drums to share! For a campus map, go to
