  FROM KIDS "Thanks a lot for the Boomwhackers.  Since I am just eleven and a beginner percussionist, I really appreciate something to help me practice.  I enjoy banging them on pretty much anything and even though I already have drum sticks and a practice pad, they are a lot more fun.  I hope I will follow through to be a top percussionist and these Boomwhackers might make it that much easier."  J. B.

"...my second grade was putting on a musical for the school.  I was picked to play one of the Boomwhackers.  I want to take percussion when I get into middle school. Then Santa gave me a set of whackers and a book and a CD. I am very happy, and I love playing with my Boomwhackers.  Thank you for making them!   C.

"Hi! My music teacher at school likes your Boomwhackers.  She has us hit them against our shoes, or a bar, but my friend used her head! I am in a special group of singers in 6th grade.  Me and the rest of the 6th grade section of the Symphony Singers don't really quite know your song about Boomwhackers by heart yet."

"My 14-year-old is loving his set of Boomwhackers.  Being a talented, young musician, he longs for a complete major scale.  His birthday is coming...how can I get the missing notes into his musical hands before March?  (His mother & My wife is going to use his set in the college music appreciation class she teaches to demonstrate the pitch/length principle.)"

J.

"Boomwhacker percussion tubes are being used as part of our new high school music curriculum for high school students not involved in band or chorus.
