The first thing you should know about Nels Anderson is that he loves his job, even on the days he’s tired. He noticed long ago how easily people bond and have fun together after a drumming session. Nels says, “I love to see the walls of inhibition come crumbling down. Not only do I love to see it in others, but in myself. It brings out abilities in me I never thought possible.”
Nels has been teaching people how to have fun drumming since 2009 with Rhythms of Life. Personally, he averages 20+ drumming events every week, engaging over 5,000 people every month of all skill levels.
Nels believes in the power of drumming, and sees it play out in the groups he works with every day. “As soon as the drumming begins, and after, I feel so grateful for the experience.”
Seeing the smiles on people’s faces, and children learning to love music makes everything worth it.
