  2. Hi Shelly, you must attend a drum circle at least one time. They're so much fun. Some of the circles even provide extra drums.

    The first step is choosing what type of drum circle you wish to attend because there's everything from Native American drum circles to Latin music and Brazilian samba to West African. And then there are the free-for-alls which combine all of the above, I kid you not.
