To Andrew Ecker, drumming isn't just the act of keeping a beat. He's facilitated drum circles for more than 17 years, experiencing firsthand the benefits of expressing oneself through the ancient art of rhythm. Through his Circle of Choice, for instance, Andrew supplies young people with a supportive outlet to express feelings about schoolyard bullying and violence. He creates a similarly safe space for wounded veterans at Circle of Warriors sessions, where vets can work through issues such as post-traumatic-stress disorder These only skim the surface of Andrew's work through Drumming Sounds, which hosts other wellness-focused drum circles at various hospitals and team-building events.
