Over the past 15 years, Giving Tree Music has brought our cultural, educational and interactive enrichment programs - including drum circles and drum making workshops all over the United States. We have used drums and creativity as the vehicle to transform a group of people into a stronger, more connected community.
We quickly recognized the strongest need for our programs was in the communities with the least resources to have them.
It was this need that inspired Rhythm-Changes.org - a registered 501c3 dedicated to reaching our most underserved communities....
Now it is time to reach farther - but we need YOUR help.
Making music changes people. It connects them to each other and to themselves.
At Rhythm-Changes.org our mission is to share the joy of creativity and music making with our most underserved communities., special needs groups and seniors.
Everyone can benefit from human connection - and everyone's day can use another smile. Our purpose is to bring everyone a chance to connect with their own community using laughter, music
Our hope for the future is to grow and continue building community across the United States , partnering with like minded people and organizations who are actively trying to make the world a happier place for our most underserved.
Growing up can be hard. Who we look up to - and who we learn from matters.
We provide leadership training, and character building initiatives to youth detention centers and community organizations through drumming and drum making.
We are all artists when we have the right tools and encouragement. We provide a handmade drum shell that participants sand, paint and customize. We tie-dye a real goatskin drum head and attach it to the drum. We will create a piece of functional art that will last a lifetime.
