In virtually every culture throughout history, drums
have been used to forge bonds
between friends and strangers, simply because they resonate on a fundamentally human level, breaking through barriers of age, gender, race, cultural background or personal hang-ups
Now, in a time when our sense of connection and community is increasingly being replaced by circuits and screens, hand-drumming is making a serious comeback!
Ripple Rhythm is thrilled to be a part of this rhythmic resurgence, and is dedicated to spreading the transformative joys of group freestyle percussion to all kinds of people
through fun, interactive rhythm-based programs, performances, lessons and more.
Whether it’s for company team-building, school programs or assemblies, community groups, condos well-being, parties, or purely for fun
– Ripple Rhythm is flexible enough to meet your needs, small or large.
There Are No Rules!

|I just wanted to send along a HUGE thank you for the drumming circle class that was held tonight. The teacher was absolutely amazing… he is a natural born teacher. I am a teacher consultant with the Toronto District school board and I teach teachers...so I really wanted to send my kudos along to him...it was awesome and I want to hear about it if it is ever happening again!!! |
|One of the reasons that Toronto has such a strong rhythmaculture community is because of Tim Gentle's support, encouragement and his abilities to coordinate across diverse cultures and populations. |
Tim shares his spirit with an open heart and shares his passion for rhythm in such a way as to make it fun and accessible to any one who comes within the sound of his drum circles.

The drum circle was great fun! You are very inspiring!
I thoroughly enjoyed your drum workshop. You did a terrific job of finding fun ways of zipping and zapping through our initial social shyness and fears. Your particular brand of theatricality in the role of leader worked as a catalyst and helped to inspire us to break out of our own mental straitjackets.
I appreciate the generosity of spirit that went into making this event accessible for those of us in need of this healing gift.
|You are kinduv fantastic. Tonight was awesome. I went to drum circle just for fun... And it turned out to be the most healing experience. People like you are what make the city, and society in general, more real. More livable. More free.|
