Welcome to KIDS DRUM / DrumFest!


Hi, I’m Daveed.

“The World is a giant drum just waiting to be played.” — Tao Te Drum I

Rhythm is an expression of that lifeline. It is the basic building block of all life. It provides continuity, but more importantly it provides a frame of reference. The drum is found in almost every culture throughout most of recorded history. It ties us together as a global community.

Welcome to the home of KIDS DRUM Baltimore and DrumFest!


KIDS DRUM / DrumFest! is a hands-on, multicultural drumming experience for people of all ages presented by percussionist Daveed Korup.  DrumFest! promotes a rhythm-based, arts-integrated approach to core learning. Activities range from in-school assembly and artist residency projects to designing to building percussion playgrounds. The menu of possibilities is only limited by your imagination.

DrumFest! programs are for students seven years old and up. Everything needed to plan a KIDS DRUM / DrumFest! experience can be found on this site.
