Did you know that November is International Drum Month?  This holiday is sponsored annually by the Percussion Marketing Council to promote awareness of  drumming.  I’m happy to report that a 2006 survey by the Percussion Marketing Council shows girls are as interested in drumming now as boys.

WITS knows how powerful it is to mix music and poetry, for boys and girls.  Here’s a poem in honor of Drum Month:

Dum-de-dum-dum

I play my drum

Fast, then slow

Hard, then soft

I listen to the wind

and tap out a rhythm

I listen to my heart

and beat out my song

Dum-de-dum-dum

I play my drum
