Greg Whitt, Drum Circle Facilitator
I combine a passion for percussion, formal studies in communication, and a background in leadership and service to offer rhythm-based team-building, health & wellness programs, cultural education for schools, and unique special events.
I've been leading rhythm-based events since 2001. I founded the Raleigh Drum Circle in 2002 as a not-for-profit rhythmic outreach. RDC closed as a non-profit in 2009, but remains active as a community group that routinely gathers to drum at Lake Johnson Park and in support of the weekly Hula Hoop Jam at Pullen Park.
Drum For Change launched in 2009. As a specialist in Recreational Music-Making, my goal is to lead fun, interactive, inclusive, and accessible events that foster community and well-being. I'm a firm believer that good vibes make for good lives!
I am president of the Drum Circle Facilitators Guild. I am a trained HealthRhythms facilitator. I hold a graduate certificate in Transformative Leadership from the Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly the Tai Sophia Institute).
