Welcome to the Oshkosh Rhythm Institute.
Our primary mission:
To promote well-being in our community through recreational music making.

We have hosted regular community drum circles in Oshkosh for over 1
5 years
and provided experienced drum circle facilitation for the Oshkosh and
surrounding communities.
Join us for a journey in rhythm.  All skill levels welcome.
Bring your own drum or play one of ours.
Our community drum circles are family friendly events.
Every Wednesday at 7pm @ 803 Waugoo Ave. Oshkosh
Now, more than ever, we find ourselves seeking ways to build community, to inspire and to
reach beyond what separates us. Playing music together puts us in touch with the creative
force that directly connects with our humanity. A drum circle is a fully participating,
interacting group of people creating and sharing a rhythmical and musical experience
together. This experience results in harmony, camaraderie and a feeling of wellness
amongst the participants.
