November is International Drum Month. Talk about some fun! Be sure and visit the PlayDrums website as they have some nice resources and videos. The emphasis is on provide learning opportunities for groups about drumming. There are some great educational resources on the site including Roots of Rhythm which I have been using as a resource in my work with preschoolers and older adults for the last year.
I love the push on this is making for music in education as well as recreational music making. But, I feel they missed mentioning some important groups – drum circle facilitators and music therapists. While the PlayDrums group may not feel skilled to address these areas, I wish they would have linked to sources related to them. (To find out why & see some resources, click here.)
