 About Drumming for Wellness

Since the dawn of time, drumming has been associated with bringing about positive physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Anyone who has laid hands on a drum will tell you it makes them feel better. Craig Norton offers drumming for wellness programs for all to experience the uplifting joy of rhythm. When you are in sync with your body and mind, you can expect to be healthy. When life is out of rhythm, there will be problems with health and relationships. Drumming helps to align our bodies and minds and connects us in many positive ways. Craig will perform live music during Qi Gong with Dr. Wu, then lead a participatory drumming for wellness program.

Craig Norton started "Hands on Drumming" in 1998, offering community drum circles throughout CT. He leads drum, dance and storytelling programs in schools, libraries, hospitals and community events throughout the Northeast US. Hands on Drumming has had the opportunity to play for hundreds of thousands of people of all ages. Hands on Drumming now specializes in participatory drumming for wellness programs, playing with yoga, Tai Chi and ecstatic dance events. Craig Norton is endorsed by Remo Drums. Norton's entrepreneurial spirit is not limited to music. He is also a professional photographer, documentary filmmaker and art educator. He recently produced the film "Rhythms of Life", about the healing power of rhythm:

Norton states, "This is not a job or hobby. It is my life's passion to share the power of the drum with everyone."
