“Percussionist Jim Greiner invokes the primal power of rhythm to lower the participants’ stress,
to exercise their minds and bodies and to bind them together in community”
-PBS special, Healing Quest
Drumming is one of humanity’s most ancient, universal and uplifting transformational activities. Throughout the ages, people worldwide have played rhythm instruments as individuals and in groups to:
- Release stress
- Enhance clarity & focus
- Connect and energize Mind, Body & Spirit
- Create social bonds & thriving communities
- Acknowledge and celebrate important events and Life Blessings
- Live Life with a spirit of play!
Recent clinical studies have also conclusively documented many of the physical, mental and emotional benefits of focused drumming activities.
Jim Greiner is an internationally renowned percussionist, educator, inspirational speaker and community drumming leader. He has developed fun, easy and enormously uplifting interactive drumming programs and rhythm-based workshops for people from all walks of life, and for groups of all types and sizes.
Jim’s award-winning work is based on over four decades of his rhythm experience and rhythm journeys, including two years in Africa where he was profoundly moved by the power of rhythm to uplift, inspire and focus people during special events and in their daily lives.
“Jim Greiner’s workshops go far beyond drumming to the roots of relationship that are longing to emerge in each of us.”
– Gary Zukav, best-selling author of “The Seat Of The Soul”

“The repetitive, physical nature of drumming, whether vigorous or tranquil, helps release stress, enhance clarity and focus, and has many of the same physical, mental and emotional benefits as Martial Arts, Yoga, Athletics and Meditation.”
– Jim Greiner, Interviewed on National Public Radio (NRP)
