Why DrumBeat?

Michael was born deaf, and as anyone with a hearing loss can attest, it is a challenge to listen to music. Drumbeats are percussive sounds, and many deaf and hard-of-hearing people find percussion instruments easier to listen to. Like the tempo of a drumbeat, each segment of the highly diverse disability market has a different tempo.
