Number Drummer Performances and Workshops are hands-on interactive experiences where audience members are active participants that work together to create and present a musical performance. During the experience, participants share drumsticks, cowbells, buckets, plastic bins, and other objects. Participants are also seated and grouped together according to the sound or instrument they are assigned. Because it is a cooperative learning experience, schools and organizations are responsible for determining the number of participants that safely occupy the space for proper health and safety.
