Furthermore, PMC is pleased to welcome three first-time member companies: Aquarian Drumheads, Low Boy Beaters, and Tamburo Drums, raising the number of member companies to 31. 

“We are excited to have several percussion manufacturers and new board leadership sign up to help PlayDrums.com gain momentum in 2022. This is a great opportunity to include new leadership perspectives in our Board of Directors,” said Antoinette Follett, PMC executive director. “The all-volunteer PMC Board governs the direction and impact of our many initiatives. I am excited to have these new individuals add their voices to the collective bench strength of the board, which is intent on growing the market for drums and percussion.” 

The PMC’s goals are: 

● Promote drumming as a positive experience for all individuals regardless of age, gender, musical background, economic means, education, or geographic location. 

● Expand both the percussion market and demand for percussion instruments through the increased visibility of all forms of percussion. 

● Unify the percussion products industry to create a stronger voice in the music industry and a forum for greater communication among all companies and members. 

For more than 25 years, the Percussion Marketing Council has been dedicated to stimulating interest in and engagement with percussion instruments. During the pandemic, as in-person activities were curtailed, the PMC developed the Fun with Drums library of videos to keep individuals and families interested in various aspects of rhythm and drumming. 

While remaining cautious as public health issues continue, the Percussion Marketing Council has plans to strengthen and sustain the market development and experiential education programs. The program funding portal at PlayDrums.com will invite new percussive arts leaders to bring in-person experiential and interactive drumming events to more communities
