Owner, Drum Magic, LLC and Editor, Drum Circle Magazine
Jana Broder, Owner - Drum Circle Facilitator
In 1998, after 20 years as a corporate caterer in Atlanta, Ga, Jana Broder sold her business, her house, and her belongings, and moved to Northern California. It was there that she was introduced to the drum. The impact of community drumming seemed to take over her dreams as she began her new, yet unknown, future. After learning technique and skills from some of the best teachers in hand drumming, she moved to Central Florida to begin her new passion; Drum Magic.
In 2002, Drum Magic became a reality as a business in the Tampa Bay area. Drum Magic was her passion and she would share that with anyone that would listen. She joined her local Chamber of Commerce where she quickly earned Ambassador of the Year followed shortly by the Small Business Administrations award of Small Business of the Year. Her leadership in the community also shows up at the Tampa Metro YMCA, where she was awarded Volunteer of the Year and has served on their advisory board.
Her recent endeavors include Drum Circle Magazine; a beautiful, quarterly, magazine that brings rhythm into everyday life. It is the goal of the magazine, as well as Jana’s, to bring recreational rhythm making into communities throughout the world. The magazine is a perfect match and Jana brings herself to the table as Editor.
When Jana is not drumming, you’ll find her at her church, the waters of Tampa Bay. She sails her little Compac Yacht, Moonshadow, as well as kayaks throughout the waterways of Tampa Bay.
