Drum circle beats out rhythms for kids at Tampa library

 Steve Turner, founder of Giving Tree Music and Oldsmar, Florida, resident, from left to right, performs a piece on his drum for Alexandria Larke, 10, Victoria Larke, 8, and other children to dance to during the Community Drum Circle program held at the Jan Kaminis Platt Regional Library in Tampa, on Tuesday, June 17, 2014.  The event held at Jan Platt Library was Turner's fourth scheduled program of the day. He says that "summer is the busiest time of year," due to numerous camps being held during the summer months when schools are out of commission.
