I have known Dori for about 10 years but have never had the pleasure of hearing her speak publically. Her sense of humor, creativity and enthusiasm are contagious! We appreciated her weaving her story into her presentation as well as incorporating her music into her program! All of that combined made for a fun, out of the box and thought provoking event! I would highly recommend her for any type of speaking and or music engagement!
Response from Dori Staehle:
Thanks, Andrea! It was my pleasure! I'm glad everyone got to do something creative and musical. Music + motivation = great ways to "beat" stress!
I have been so lucky to see and work with Dori Staehle at least three times. I have found her presentations to be inspiring, engaging and extremely educational when it comes to marketing. I enjoy seeing Dori speak because I know she is always going to keep my attention and that I will walk away with several tips I can begin to use immediately to improve both my life and my business.
Response from Dori Staehle:
Thanks for the opportunities, Joe! I love working with you! It's always fun to be able to bring some energy and inspiration!
Dori has an amazing ability to capture the minds and hearts of young people. I had Dori bring her talents to a group of at-risk youth who were living in some very challenging circumstances. She was able to get their attention and get them working together in a weekly drumming session. By helping them to get focused and to relieve some stress, we were better able to work with them in the entrepreneurial projects they were working on. The kids looked forward to Dori's sessions, and we were delighted to work with her.
Response from Dori Staehle:
Thank you, Sheyenne! It was a pleasure sharing some beats and encouragement with those kids! They had great rhythm and it really boosted their confidence!

"Dori and her drums took our event to the next level! She taught 30 visually-impaired kids how to find their rhythm and to feel it in their core. They were rocking within the first few minutes and had an amazing time! The looks on their faces and watching them dance and drum was priceless!" Thank you, Dori!

A freak accident in 2011 triggered a rare disease and caused Dori Staehle to rethink her life and her purpose. She healed in a very unusual way: drumming. Dori accepted her Divine Assignment to help others heal and break free from what's holding them back, so they can rise up and rock the next stage of their lives.
She started her business and ministry with only $40 and later became a certified drum therapist. Dori has two books on Amazon, including Find Your Divine Rhythm: A Creative’s Success Formula and her new book, Rise Up and Rock: Activating Your God-Given Purpose. Dori loves to help teens and adults see their potential and find their purpose.
Dori is certified with world-renowned Drums and Disabilities and also holds certificates in therapeutic drumming and Christian counseling. She offers high-energy interactive classes and events and private drum therapy sessions (in-person or virtual). Her talks and events have been described as uplifting, encouraging, empowering, and loads of fun! Buckle up and get ready to rock!!
Additional Booking Notes
If it's a small group (up to 50 people) and I'm bringing instruments for the audience, chairs need to be positioned so that the audience members have room to place a small drum in front of them. Chairs can be in a circle or in rows. If round tables are being used, that is a bit more challenging but can work as well.
I have my own headset and speaker or I can run direct through your speaker. If it's just a regular talk, I may have a PowerPoint presentation. If we close out with a rockin' tune, I can either run that through my speaker or, if you have a DJ, he or she can cue up the tune.
Influences & Inspiration
Robin Williams for his comedic delivery, Sheila E and Tito Puentes for drumming, and, for Christian speakers, Christine Caine or Priscilla Scheer.
