Different Drum PlayShop is a whole different approach to a Drumming Circle where you play with your drum and learn how to enjoy playing with everyone else in the Circle!

Here’s what Don Schultz, founder of The Different Drum has to say about his Drum Circle 101 PlayShop:

So, someone gave you a drum and you have no idea what to do with it.

Or, you took your drum to a drum circle, got blown out by the “Dreadlocked Hippy Thunder Drummer” (we all know who he is), packed up your stuff and went home.

Better still – you’ve never touched a drum in your life.

You’re our kind of people!

In this Facilitated Drum Circle, Don Schulz will walk you through basic rhythm structure, orchestration, and essentials to “Jamming“, in a fun-filled, stress free, educational PlayShop.


Your chair (in case we run out!)



  • Have a drum, bring it!
  • Have a spare? Bring one to share!
  • No drum? No problem!

There will be a handful of loaners, as well as a basket full of other noisy toys.

Come play with us!

“Don knows his stuff and teaches in a straightforward yet playful way. I learned much and I am not a total newbie to drumming.”

Chris Iles, Soquel, CA

“Always a sellout at Pantheacon. You don’t want to miss this.”

Lora Keller, San Diego, CA

“Don is an engaging, big-hearted teacher who can make you feel like a DRUMMER!”

Mara Clear Spring Cook, San Diego, CA

About Don Schultz:

Bitten by the love of a Mother Drum in 2000, Don followed his passion until people began asking him to make drums for them! In May 2004 he quit his 20 year career to make drums full time. His PlayShops became a natural extension of his joy of people and connecting them to their own drums.
