Rufus Glassco has been a drum circle facilitator and teaching hand drumming since 2003. As the Director of Rhythm Kingdom, he brings drumming into schools, community centres, churches, temples, hospitals and many other places.

Rufus is a part of the Royal Conservatory of Music’s revolutionary Learning Through the Arts Program. He is also a HealthRhythms facilitator, a drum company that has led the way in cutting-edge research into the healing power of rhythm and group hand drumming.

In addition, he has had the remarkable opportunity to work with patients recovering from brain injuries at the Toronto Grace Health Centre, Wellspring’s Cancer Support Centres, people living with HIV and AIDS, youth recovering from mental illness and elder adults with dementia and Alzheimer Disease.
