    17th Annual

    February 25-27, 2022

    “Rhythm Reimagined”

    The DCFG conference is an amazing experience full of great presentations, learning experiences, open sharing, and as always amazing drum circle facilitators. The 17th Annual Drum Circle Facilitators Guild Conference is for anyone and everyone who incorporates rhythm and/or drumming into their work; including settings such as:

    • Schools/Education
    • Non-profits
    • Well elderly/seniors
    • Health/wellness
    • Community events
    • Corporate
    • Workplace training
    • Social services

    In the spirit of the conference theme "Rhythm Reimagined"  and out of an abundance of caution and respect for the health and safety of our guild members, this year's conference will be a little different. The Drum Circle Facilitator’s Guild (DCFG) Conference will be available virtually! Attendees will have the ability to watch both live and recorded sessions.

    The conference will feature a variety of workshops and presentations on a wide range of DCF topics. There will be an array of activities ranging from formal presentations, open sharing, and of course plenty of time to simply drum together.  Conference sessions are designed for participants who have working knowledge and experience with basic DCF principles and techniques.  Beginning DCFs are of course welcome, however keep in mind that this is not intended as introductory instruction on how to lead drum circles.  It is instead a symposium of best practices and new ideas from industry leaders.


    Virtual Registration: $150 (all-access registration - virtual attendees will have the ability to watch live and recorded sessions).  Scholarships are available;  see link below to apply.

    • Kassel, Germany

    Germany proudly present a special Drum Circle Workshop on the Dörnberg near Kassel with Angela Leickel, Stephan Emig, and Mathias Reuter in a fantastically beautiful landscape.

    The Workshop team (VMC trained/certified; Remo endorsed)  are a skilled group of facilitators, motivational workshop trainers and  professional musicians.

    This drum circle community workshop is aimed at all those who are interested, who have already attended a drum circle workshop or have gained experience with drum circles, and at all those who simply want to "jam" with like-minded people and broaden their musical horizons. Workshop contents: Advanced drum circle techniques and facilitation; refinement of body language and the use of language; dealing with different target groups; basic attitudes and values; intention and finding one's own motivation; "mindset" musician/people interaction; improvisation: Ultimate Orchestration Method for direct application on the instrument; expanding one's own orchestration and dynamics vocabulary & groove training; rhythm games for big, small, old and young; games with and without instruments; singing and movement games; games for large groups; warming-up and cool-down games.

    We are also happy to receive questions from your daily facilitation routine in advance, which we will then gladly take into account in the Workshop.

    In this practical workshop we will be at your disposal for 3 days with all our experience. The conference centre offers a lot of space, great catering (organic) and of course there is a "Late Night Drumming" every evening.

    Early bird rate: 369 Euros (including meals and overnight stay at conference centre.) Early bird ends 29 Nov 2021. 

    Language of instruction: German
