The Inspiration of Percussion

Ben and his new drum kit
This is going to sound a little silly, but I'd like you to do something for me. I'd like you to clap your hands together. Now, I'd like you to clap your hands twice. Stomp your feet. Clap again once more. Then twice again. Stomp. If you followed along with me, you may now have a bit of rhythm forming in your head. It's a musical beat that you could not only hear, but you could feel it throughout your entire body. Music has become a tactile experience … the rhythm coming into the body through the hands and the feet.
