"Make It Your Own" — Creating a DCF business that fits YOU
Growing your DCF business means molding your unique blend of musical skills, professional background, personal style, and local connections into a business that fits YOU.
Alisha Ross Ramcharitar has done this twice, in Miami and then again in Jacksonville, Florida, where she now lives. Alisha will share how she developed her local markets and "business machine" to where they are today. We'll identify her underlying strategies that you can adapt for your business.
"High-Value Programs" — From Teambuilding to Leadership Training
If you want to get paid more, your programs need to be worth more to the Client.
Barcelona-based Oliver Watson and his partner Mercé Mateo Olivares offer rhythm programs designed for business results, ranging from 1-hour teambuilding sessions to 16-hour leadership training. Oliver will share his approach to developing and selling his high-value programs.
"Turn Your Passion Into Business" — Nurturing the Heart of Your Business
A DCF business can go in so many directions, you might as well focus on what really makes your heart sing!
Peta Minter of Melbourne, Australia has allowed her utter joy for the music itself to amplify into product offerings and specific kinds of programs. She will share how her evolution as an expressive artist is driving her business identity and direction.
"Shifting into Thrive" — Gaining & sustaining business momentum
Ever wish you could "reverse engineer" the path to DCF success?
We're all so unique, no one else's path will get you There (sorry). But Jeni Swerdlow makes an excellent case study!
Since moving to Oakland to start DRUMMM in 2004, Jeni has gone from
scraping for any gig to a satisfying flow of work. Jeni will share how
she built her business into repeat gigs with libraries, community

Designing experiential learning programs for adults has been “my thing” for over 20 years. I’ve been gratified to set the stage for life-changing shifts for thousands of participants in academic, corporate, personal growth, and drumming groups.
My life before drum circles was in the business world, where I learned a lot, but which ultimately led me to a soul-crushing dead end.
Luckily, I discovered drum circles. I was astounded at the depth of experience, learning, and transformative potential of group drumming. I’ve been enthralled and immersed ever since.
I am part of the world-wide community of drum circle facilitators (DCFs) whose “hub” was created by the work of Arthur Hull. Arthur’s teachings, travels, dedicated rhythm evangelism, and focus on community building has built a powerful network of “rhythm practitioners” serving groups of all kinds.
I have been fortunate to meet, visit, and work with hundreds of practicing DCFs at various trainings, conferences, and on my “Drumabout” travels. Long fascinated by how people come to this work from such wildly different fields, I’ve tracked “what works” as colleagues develop their DCF businesses and careers.
Over the years, I have helped design programs for Drum Circle Facilitators Guild conferences and Arthur Hull / Village Music Circles.
And I love helping people help more people drum!
