Car Tune Playground


This interactive drumming center features repurposed tires converted to drums by wrapping them with layers of heavy duty shipping tape. A variety of car parts such as fenders and steering wheels become rhythm instruments to contrast with the bass percussion of the tire drums.


Community members will be invited to start a rhythm while others join in or develop counter rhythms. In addition, familiar “car tunes” such as Little Deuce Coop, Mustang Sally and Low Rider will be played while our docents instruct the participants in easy to learn beats that can be played to the music.
