The Iowa City Public Library and the Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department want families to get with the beat.

From 7 to 9 p.m. on the first Tuesday of every month through April 5, 2016, families can participate in a drumming session with the Yahoo Drummers at the Robert A. Lee Recreation Center Gymnastics Room as part of the Library’s Music is the Word series. Participants will learn how to play percussion instruments from all over the world, creating a unique musical experience with each session.

For 20 years, the Yahoo Drummers have led drum circles with groups of all sorts and ages at churches, weddings, funerals, libraries, bar mitzvahs, dog shows, county fairs, and museums. The Library and the Parks and Recreation Department are excited to share their talent and enthusiasm with area families.

The monthly drumming sessions are open to the public and are free of charge; registration is not required.

For more information, contact the Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department at 319-356-5100.
