Ashley Tisdale, MT-BC is a board-certified music therapist, accredited drum circle facilitator, and founder of Dynamic Rhythms, LLC.
Ashley facilitates drum circles in and around Charlotte, NC and Tega Cay, SC. She also gives her time and abilities to the local non-profit organization drumSTRONG, which provides drum circles to raise funds for cancer survivorship and research in the Charlotte area and around the world. DrumSTRONG's more recent efforts have included supporting the children in Ukraine through Rhythm Aid Projects.
In her work as a music therapist, Ashley works primarily with children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, utilizing music and rhythm to address individualized goals in a therapeutic setting. She also provides music lessons for students of any age and ability!
Every drumming event Ashley facilitates, there is a question that is asked and answered, "What can I do to serve the circle?". In watching the group's connection, listening deeply to the rhythms at play, and feeling the energy of the group, Ashley facilitates the circle to take them on their own rhythmical journey, to elevate the group's musicality, and deliver them to their own rhythmic bliss. Music and rhythm have always been a part of Ashley's life, and she is excited to share the joy and empowerment that it can bring with all of you!
