Number Drummer Live is a one-of-a-kind interactive production where the entire audience “drums” up mathematics to create an awesome musical performance. The moment the audience enters, each member receives a musical instrument and begins the mission to learn and perform the music and math skills needed to play in the show’s final performance. Math skills include addition, multiplication, division, fractions, money, algebra and more. Music skills include beat, rhythm, pitch, timbre, dynamics, tempo, and form. Throughout the production, participants perform multiple math skills simultaneously. Skills such as addition and fractions are performed at the same time, yet produce the same musical result. Number Drummer Live is energizing, engaging, entertaining, and highly educational, and reveals the power of music within math and math within music. It’s an amazing demonstration of music and math skills producing a spectacular “surround sound” audience performance. Number Drummer Live is the ultimate interactive math and music experience.

Number Drummer Workshops provide participants with the opportunity to learn drumming through mathematics in a more individualized small group setting. During the workshops, participants walk through the key components that make up a Number Drummer performance, and learn, apply, and practice the required skills and concepts using instruments. Participants also exercise creative thinking as they produce, practice, and present their rhythmic work of art. Elementary workshops have a greater focus on math skills, such as addition, multiplication, division, fractions, money, algebra and more. Middle school workshops target mastery, and have a greater focus on music skills, yet reinforce and utilize mastered math skills such as fractions, ratios, proportions, and more. Music skills include beat, rhythm, timbre, dynamics, tempo, and form. It is a fun, energizing, and engaging experience that reveals musical talents and mathematical abilities. It is truly a one-of-a-kind experience.
