"Drummer/Educator Dan Britt drew gasps of delight from the crowd." - Modern Drummer Magazine (Oct)
"Author and musician Dan Britt, known in the spiritual world for his contribution to the spiritual discipline of drumming, knows first hand the power of having a small flame lit in his spirit that led to great things. After being exposed to the art of spiritual drumming, Britt, began to seek instruction from the world’s best authorities in the art that personally led him to become one of the world’s leading instructors himself. Telling his life story, Britt states, "I cannot overestimate the power of finding something and someone that can influence you, and spark the flame within you." He recalls one of his own teachers telling him, "The cycle of self empowerment begins with respecting the flame and feeding that flame until it glows from within you. Turning you into a beacon that not only has the power to show you the way, but can be a source of guidance and inspiration for others. Do it before it’s too late. Find that flame. It’s where a happier life begins" (Quoting Dom Famularo). Today Dan Britt not only is a world class teacher and performer, but donates his time and talent to teaching the art of spiritual drumming to children in inner city public schools. – Reading his story makes me reflect on the mustard seed sayings of Jesus. Something as small as seeing another drummer inspired Dan Britt’s life to become "a tree where the birds of the air can make their nests, and is powerful enough to say to mulberry trees ‘be cast into the sea.’" - Reverend Shawn Kafader, First Congregational Church of LaGrange (in his Sermon entitled "Mustard Seed Faith", 10/3/04)
