If you thought boomwhackers were just for kids, think again.
Better still, listen to the percussion group Plastik Musik in their astounding Boomwhacker performance:
The first time I met Craig Ramsell, creator of the Boomwhackers, was in Phoenix, Arizona, about 15 years ago at a music education conference. At the time, I knew his newly created pitched plastic tubes called Boomwhackers would be destined for a big role in music classrooms. In fact, it took the music education world by storm, and there is scarcely a music classroom anywhere today in the USA without a set of Boomwhackers. A whole new wave of Boomwhackers educational materials soon flooded the market, including books, games, musicals, and CDs, boosting the popularity of these colorful pitched instrument tubes.
The Boomwhackers boom was further inspired by the popularity of the off-Broadway percussion sensation called STOMP (who used rubber tubes in one of their famous routines). Like STOMP, which is still going strong in New York and on worldwide tours, the Boomwhackers craze continues to invade the planet.
