Ruach Rhythms are now offering school and community packages tailored to meet our expanding cultural communities.

Our workshops are designed to introduce adults, teenagers and children of all ages to the beauty of other cultures through music and song. These workshops are interactive, allowing people to experience drum rhythms for themselves while also helping to improve hand eye and brain coordination in the younger members of our community and a sense of cooperation, team work, community and connection for all. We encourage participants towards the importance of working together to create a shared experience in a respectful and fun filled environment.
