Some of the women (depending on what they do) can work with people from all over the world through skype, phone conferences, internet, etc. So check' em out here, and if so called, contact them!
Drumming: One of my drum teachers is the lovely Sheridan Gold, and she's located in Petaluma, CA. She has many years of experience in music playing and directing, and also is an extremely talented flute player as well as drummer. She works with people of all ages, facilitates drum circles, and is currently doing some deep studying on the healing aspects of the drum. Playing with her is renewing, energizing, and very uplifting. Let's just flat-out say it: it's a spiritual experience! ;) Learning to play the drum is one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself, on all levels!

Drumming: Stori Davis is another drum teacher of mine, and she is a lot of fun! She lives in Santa Rosa, and holds a very helpful class in learning how to get in sync with others/The Beat/performing. Learn to jam, get in touch with drum community AND access your Higher Self at the same time! Check out her style and contact info through her website: http://www.womencandrum.com/
