  1. Helen also offers weekly workshops and performances at the Cultural & Civic Center of Round Lake Beach. She also offers FREE Community Drum Circles @ the Center. She has one TOMORROW EVENING- Saturday, March 24 from 6:30-8 pm. These are great events: Free, it is for those who have never touched a drum to experienced, all ages from little ones all the way up playing together! Helen brings plenty of drums if you don’t have one. Fun event for families. Give it a try!
