Everyone Plays

At interactive DRUMMING ABOUT YOU programs, entire groups get hands-on with an inviting array of drums and world percussion instruments.  Bob Bloom leads everyone to play along with joy-filled rock & roll, boogie, funk, folk, and swing songs that have catchy beats and engaging melodies. Bob's participatory music is presented at schools, recreation sites, eldercare centers, libraries, museums, healthcare and disabilities facilities, social work agencies, performance venues, and team building retreats.

Bob's certification as a "Master Teaching Artist" was awarded by The Connecticut Commission on the Arts in 1997.
For over a decade, he served as a faculty assistant to Dr. Babatunde Olatunji for his Language of the Drums courses, and he performed as a member of Drums of Passion, Dr. Olatunji's internationally acclaimed drumming and dance company.
Bob served from 2007 to 2010 as chair of the Interactive Drumming Committee of The Percussive Arts Society, the largest percussion organization in the world.
