The History of Our Training

Our Drum Circle Facilitator Training Program was created in 2004 after a swift rise in interest and engagement of InRhythm sessions across Australia within a broad range of service areas.

These service areas included, the corporate sector, schools, youth agencies, the general community, special needs organisations and child care.

The InRhythm Facilitator Training Program was rolled out in-house to train and accredit InRhythm facilitators to meet the growing demand.

After huge success the program was adapted to cater for external service providers within their own organisations and is on offer for independent use within your own communities and organisations.


Why are Drum Circles so effective?

Community drumming is a vehicle that can empower the human spirit, realign the body's energy system, stimulate creativity, build community, foster team spirit, promote healing and enhance general wellbeing and quality of life. (check out some research here)

InRhythm’s Drum Circle Facilitator Training will equip you and your staff with the skills needed to lead a group of people into empowerment, inspiration, improving health, wellbeing, & joy all through the transformative power of rhythm and meditation.

Cultivate Facilitation



"The InRhythm facilitator training was such a memorable, positive and transformational experience (both professionally and personally). Tim is inspirational! From a music teachers perspective, the 8 week program is well-constructed, user friendly and adaptable to cater for anyone of any age and any ability level."

Anna Dart | Music Specialist Teacher

"Loved the course, felt very passionate about it. Met all my expectations, resources are useful and detailed enough, but not too difficult to understand or get caught up in theory. Learned so much in the practical sessions while just having fun.

I highly recommend Inrhythm training courses and activities to everyone. They are great for children of all ages, and the staff who work with them, corporate groups and people looking for a fun way to enhance teamwork. Young, old, musically talented, tone deaf, rhythmically challenged or professional. Tim and his team make drumming so fun, you don't even realise you're learning. Instruction happens in a safe and playful environment, where everyone's individual creativity is encouraged and celebrated. The connection between the group creates a powerful instrument to implement immediate and lasting change. After completing the Facilitator Course I have begun teaching my own workshops. Drumming is the way of the future! Thanks InRhythm. "

Cara McInerney | Learning & Support Teacher

"You never know what to expect on training but this will far exceed your expectations. A friendly, open and experiential style of teaching which creates a passion in you to drum. Tim's calm and collaborative approach to teaching makes you leave wanting to share it with others and practice your new skills with pride.  By the end of the course you have a sense of connection with the other participants and after, continue to feel that you are part of a InRhythm community. Thanks again! 

I enjoyed the experiential style of teaching. Great that there was a range of drums to try. The learning manuals are helpful to take away. It's good that there are different levels you can grow your skills moving forward on line. Great balance of personal and professional learning."
