    When I first met Toby, it was on a dare. I told my friend that if what I was about to experience was too weird, I was out of there in a heart beat.

    Let me says this – I have been with and following Toby since the formative years of his practice. All I can say is BEAUTIFUL.

    I was quite lost, and miserable. It was the connection that he provided to the vibration of life. I used to think that the sound vibrations of life were just big dull thuds when things went wrong. I have since discovered that life is all about vibrations. The sounds we generate when we are LIVING.

    What I discovered was that Sound Attunment goes perfect with every walk of life. Absolutely every road you travel has a vibration. The drum is a great transformer of energy.

    Toby is a master at reading the vibrations of the body and spirit, and with the assistance of his shaman hoop drum, he discoveres your spiritual pulse, and uses the Healing Drum to assist in kick starting a positive vibration that will carry you on your way to recovering from your woe’s.

    He is engaging the community. Encouraging the community to come together in a “Happy Dance” of pure joy.

    I have had the blessing of being a witness to this revolution. I have been there, and will continue to carry the message. It brought me full circle, from the woe’s to the bliss.

    Toby reintroduced me to drumming a few years ago while he was visiting and working in Connecticut. Toby is a master drummer – no doubt. I also really appreciate Toby’s sense of humor, enthusiasm and his knowledge of ancient drumming and healing techniques. I am not at all surprised to see Toby’s reputation and demand increase. Bravo!

    I met Toby at Vision Quest 2006, which changed my life completely. He has been my drum healer ever since. Toby plays a huge part with my sobriety(sober for 20 months), balancing out my emotions, discovering who I am /what I stand for and connecting with myself and others. During our drum sessions, Toby has connected me with several power animals who have been a big part of my life and always will be. Defeating an addiction is extremely challenging and meeting Toby has changed all of that. I owe a HUGE part of my success in life to Toby, I wouldn’t be where I am with out him. Thank you Toby for being a part of my life. I treasure your friendship love and kindness.
    Peace Love and Light

    Any time spent with Toby is time of laughter and self-discovery. Whether in a Drum Circle, Workshop, or private session Toby and his gifts touch your forgotten, dust covered soul and changes your life.
    His powerful stories pull you into a world of touching human trials that let you see there are ways free. A way to open and to feel loved again.

    His drumming opens worlds that help you to uncover and unlock the door of your burdened soul so that YOU are able to walk in and do the cleaning and rebuilding. His gentle guidance with the drums, help your eyes to focus on what is guiding you to greatness! Then just hang on! The ride is ridiculously amazing!!!!

    Toby, the things you have brought into my life and others is beyond mere- words, the love you have for us all and the support you give are boundless. The energy, patience, knowledge and humour, are your gifts you share with all of us and for all this I am So Very Grateful! Please NEVER stop drumming, never stop teaching, and NEVER stop putting out that hand to help those of us up when we have fallen!

    Thanks for offering it to me!
