“It’s time to stop thinking of the drum as just a musical instrument. Start thinking of it as a unifying tool for every family, a wellness tool for every retiree, and an educational tool for every classroom. At Remo, we’d like to help people of all ages and abilities include drumming, one of the oldest forms of music making, in their personal prescription for wellness.”

Mickey Hart

Pianist, Composer, Recording Artist & American Music Therapy Association National Spokesperson

“As a national artist spokesperson for AMTA, I have had the good fortune to watch music therapists at work in a variety of settings. The undeniable link between music and wellness is as obvious in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) as it is in nursing homes. Music not only humanizes modern medicine, it enables it to function at its highest potential.”
