13 Steps to DrumFace

Wouldn’t it be great to have a handy-dandy guide for cruising the dark days of Winter?  All this 2012 Mayan Calendar stuff has us thinking:  where exactly are we headed?  Of course, the real question is: where would we like to go?

“Drum-face” is the expression a person makes while drumming.  It’s somewhere between ‘contemplation’ and ‘joy’, the face of a person blissfully present in an activity.  That is precisely where we want to be; it’s where we are when we are making.

The Maya may (or may not) be onto something.  Either way, fun times are only steps away at DrumFace!  Show some ‘Face’ of your own at one of our events, or just stop in and see what mad creative stuff transpires in the warmth of our studio.  Not in Chicago?  Share a picture of your “Drum-face” on our FaceBook page, to keep us smiling as we work away!

There’s no reason to hibernate; enjoy the Magic that is Winter.  Join in the rhythm with friends and take your own “13 Steps” to DrumFace.  Out doing some shopping?  Remember: DrumFace drums make great gifts, beautifying the home even when not in use!
