Music has always been a huge part of my life, and with a drummer for a husband, you know music is huge in this family! I made a point of singing and dancing with Boo from almost the moment he was born, and he's been exposed to so many genres of music over the years. His music lessons began as a toddler, from a local teacher who focused on world music and percussion, which he loved. And last year he took up the electric guitar. Classic rock and 90s grunge seem to be big hits for that. Definitely takes after his parents :)
Mystic Drumz is a music education and entertainment company that has 20 years' experience in bringing world music to children. With a focus on percussion, they offer drumming sessions for groups from 10-100, children to adults, and provide programming to schools, daycares. summer camps, and more. You can even hire them for your kid's birthday party or a corporate team building event! Mystic Drumz began in Toronto in 1995, and is now active in three countries (Canada, U.S.A. and Mexico) servicing over 20 cities and delivering programs in English, French, and Spanish.
