WHO IS Nigel E. Harris? 

Nigel creates movement and excitement using drumming wherever he goes - if you want a musical wizard to liven up your event… he's your choice.

As chief cook and bottle washer of 'Musical Wellness' since 2003 (musicalwellness.com), Nigel is a catalyst for creating the positive energy shift that happens to people through drumming and music. Working with regular folk in organizations, a typical day will take him on the road from Kanata to Orleans and all points in between.

Nigel is gaining national recognition for his Therapeutic Drumming Circles. The energy released in the communal primal drumming sessions, 'awakens' the circle of participants inspiring them to work together more effectively creating a happier and more productive workplace 

Following 25 years working in the engineering industry between 1975 and 2000, Nigel continues to be a contribution to organizations, this time as a lunchtime drumming 'coach', assisting management in developing and maintaining a culture of 'wellness' in the workplace.
