“Adam and Path To Rhythm lead a group drumming program at my Power Boost Live Event. Every one had so much fun! People who had never drummed before were drumming and releasing their inhibitions. Adam had a wonderful way of integrating the key messages of the conference into the drumming program that was powerful for the participants. From our experience, every one’s spirits were high, they were laughing, and it sent people leaving with a great feeling. Mission accomplished!”

What We Do

Drumming together is a fun, easy and exciting way to engage and connect people. Path To Rhythm will bring drums for all of your participants to use. We facilitate a program that includes a light instructional piece. We then enable participants to play together, creating a group rhythm that captures the energy and spirit of the event. Long after the program is over, participants will remember the excitement of the drumming and will associate this feeling with your event.

The benefits to the participants:

  • Connection to each other.
  • A strong sense of belonging to a whole. They will be playing as ONE.
  • Free of inhibition.
  • Happy, relaxed, and stress free.
  • Drumming is a low impact, yet physical, activity. After drumming, participants will feel inspired, confident, and empowered.
  • FUN!

The benefits to the event planner:

  • Your event will be remarkable.
  • IMPACT! Participants will remember the excitement of the drumming and carry this memory when they recall YOUR event.
  • Be seen as someone who is willing to incorporate extraordinary programs.

“I recently experienced a Path To Rhythm drumming circle, which was incorporated into a business event’s closing ceremony.  After two days of marketing, business strategy, and networking, I was blown away by the effectiveness of the drumming.  As a seasoned event planner, I know that it is not enough to just deliver a program with great content.  Without emotional and sensory connections, learning and subsequent action will fail to occur.  Adam’s drumming program integrated all we’ve learned through feeling, movement, and rhythm, and left us with a powerful affirming message that we could carry home with us.  It was exciting, invigorating, informative, and FUN.   I highly recommend including Adam in your next event design; no matter what the subject or genre — it is a beautiful, magical, universal experience that will fit any occasion.”

– Valerie LaPenta Steiger, Specialized Event Planner

“It was great having your company at our event, the activity was awesome and every one enjoyed it!”

Our Programs

Event Kick-off

Path To Rhythm will help you open your event with a bang! We will facilitate ice-breaker activities that will get participants loose and interacting with each other, all while drumming and jamming together. The group will learn a short, easy drumming pattern that will be played in unison to segue into the start of the event. Best for groups under 200 participants.

Large Group Energizer Session with Boomwhackers

{see video above}

We will facilitate a remarkable session that will have your attendees creating rhythm together as one group. Using instruments called boomwhackers, we enable and empower large audiences to play together. We arrange for boomwhackers to be shipped to your event location. You have the option of purchasing the boomwhackers for your attendees to keep as a souvenir. It will remind them of the fun and connection that they felt during your event.
This is an ideal way to empower large groups, we have done this for groups of 600 to over 2,700 participants.

Closing Ceremony

Path To Rhythm will help close out your event by capturing the energy of participants and helping them to express their experience by drumming together. We will facilitate a group drumming piece that encourages celebration, unity, and connection. This is a perfect way to solidify the learning experience and send participants home feeling grounded and complete.

Break-out Session

Path To Rhythm will work with you to incorporate the theme and message of your event into a customized session. We will work with metaphors and analogies that combine your message and apply them to the context of creating rhythm together as a group.
