Drumming is an integral part of many music genres, from rock and pop to jazz and hip hop.
It’s a highly skilled and technical art form that requires a lot of practice, dedication, and talent. There are countless interesting statistics and facts about drummers, drumming, and drum kits that can shed light on the industry and the people who play this instrument.
