Hello All,<br><br>
I am desperately trying to find other serious hand drummer/ percussionists that live in the NYC area that would like to bring our instruments (and kids) to the park and play.<br>
That's what I used to do before I had my son, who's now two. Now, all I do is get together with other mothers and talk about our kids, or kvetch, or lie around, or keep trying to think of ways to entertain the kids.<br>
My son is totally entertained by drumming and music (as most children are) and is even a focused drummer himself.<br>
I feel like a big part of me has been lost that doesn't have to be.<br>
I would love to find other parents (men or women) who would like to meet up for playdates that revolve around jamming.<br>
Is there anyone out there??

Have you gone to Central Park or out to Prospect Park in Brooklyn? CP has drummers (somewhere, I don't know where, though) on the weekends. Prospect Park has a specific Drummer's Circle area where people get together & play.<br><br>
You could also check out Tribal Soundz (6th St where all the Indian restaurants are) & put up a notice there. I don't drum (I attempt to dance), but those are places where I've seen/heard drummers playing. No moms with babies, but I'm sure you're not the 1st or only one! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Good luck!

Thanks - I already know about all the drum circles (been playing in them for 7 years +) and Tribal Soundz. I guess maybe I am the only mamma drummer in the area!?! I never would've believed it. Maybe I should start classes to teach some of the non-musician mammas out there who might want to learn.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/drum.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="drum">:

Distracted? Yeah, it's funny how that happens.....<br>
Well, if you ever come down around my way shoot me an email or give me a call and maybe we can play in the park.<br><br><a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a><br><br>
