May is International Drum Month

May is International Drum Month


International Drum Month sets the rhythm all month long.

Every music lover knows the percussion section gets people out of their seats and onto the dance floor. We don't need a symbol to get us moving. Whether we're attending a concert or playing with friends, it doesn't take much for us to chime in.

Within a few notes of the drum or cymbal, we can identify our favorite tunes. Children will even tap out a rhythm at an early age. Music is in our hearts. We were born to play.

Throughout the month, attend a concert or pick up your favorite percussion instrument to play. Visit the local music store and explore the latest gear and see what you've been missing. Maybe it's time for a lesson or two.
