RHYTHM! DISCOVERY CENTER

>> Rhythm! Discovery Center is a drummer’s paradise, and I’m not even a drummer. Located on Washington Street next to Weber Grill downtown, this small, tucked away museum offered me the most fun I’ve had in weeks. This place not only taught me the history of various percussion instruments, it also gave me the chance to play any percussion instrument I could imagine. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, answering any questions I had. I learned so much about percussion – from ancient African slit drums to the set  up of the famous drummer of Rush, Neil Peart. The best part about this museum is that no prior percussion experience is required. As a musician, not a percussionist, I found it interesting to experience a side of music that I had never explored that much. To top it all off, Rhythm! Discovery Center offers discounts to students. Needless to say, I will be going back to this museum very soon.
