Our Mission

Welcome to our Community Drumming website! We'd like to emphasize that the mission of our site is to make drumming enjoyable and an integral part of your life.

Communitydrumming.com was designed to be an interactive and learning environment that promotes recreational drumming.

Group drumming succeeds when participants play their parts with a spirit of community, which will create rhythms that groove and unite. Individual practice is also suggested to help build skill and confidence.

We encourage you to contribute your ideas and comments. Once again our goal is to make drumming fun for all people.

Let the Rhythm Flow!

Jim Greiner to Conduct Community Drumming Event

LP artist and corporate and community drumming pioneer, Jim Greiner will conduct a community-building drumming session at the Santa Cruz, California Beach Boardwalk on Sunday, July 27th at 8:30am. Greiner's interactive drumming session will take place near the starting line of this year's Wharf To Wharf Race.

Greiner will conduct 40 drummers in a powerful groove that supports the 15,000 runners as they begin the 10K race that begins at the Santa Cruz Wharf and continues along the scenic Monterey Bay coastline to the Capitola Wharf. If you are interested in drumming with Jim, please contact him by email for registration information by Saturday, July 26th. All levels of experience, with any kind of percussion instruments, are most welcome!

Jim has conducted this drumming session for 20 years, and his group of drummers is the first of 50 musical groups that line the course to inspire the runners. The Wharf To Wharf Race is a benefit event that has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years for area youth athletic programs.
