About The Bus
Kids need more opportunities to move and play. It’s a no-brainer!
Despite this fact, many school district budgets lack funding for music, physical education, and art. Even recesses are being curtailed to increase prep time for state-mandated tests.
To help fill this void, and to get kids moving and playing, Mike Liston began facilitating group-rhythm events in schools in 2006. After a year or two dealing with limited space for kids to “turn up the volume”, he created the first DrumBus™ a self-contained mobile music room which includes the facilitator, instruments and space to play.
Why Drumming? Drumming improves confidence, creativity, listening skills, and focus. It also builds community and enhances collaboration.
It is good for the body and the brain and everyone can participate—no music experience needed.
We heard great things about theDrumBus™, and it definitely didn't disappoint! We had so much fun having Nels and all of his awesome equipment for a party - from ages 1 to grandparents, everyone was engaged and having fun. He was great to work with and it was a really fun addition to a birthday party. We're not super musical or drumming people, and people who seemed reluctant even joined in and had fun, he's definitely got something for everyone! Highly recommend!Emily P.

I'm wondering why I never contacted these guys sooner! Seriously, they all have commendable talent in their respective fields and knocked my concept out of the ballpark. Thanks for an amazing experience!Jack GrahamCo founder, Coffee Inc
