Drums Not Guns Is Being Updated!

Happy's death left us all saddened and in a state of mourning.  He fought so hard to live up to the end that he did not believe he was going to succumb until it was too late. He did not leave us access to make changes to the site. We now have that access.

We are moving forward to honor his vision, to keep Drums Not Guns strong and to keep it growing.  In an effort to keep as the pre-eminent clearing house for all things drumming, I am currently heading up a group of committed folks who are working hard to clean up, update, and re-organise the site.  Please bear with us as we forge ahead through this transformation, and check back often.

Suggestions and inquiries may be directed to Michael KennyMMT, MT-BC, President of Drums Not Guns.

Drumming to End Violence on Earth!

Think Globally  |  Act Glocally

The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate.... Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: Only love can do that.    - Martin Luther King, Jr.

Drums Not Guns - is a FUN 501 (c)(3) non-profit membership organization devoted to stopping violence (increase the peace) through the power of percussion; to provide our youth with creative ways to re-channel negative energy...diffuse team spirit,  self-worth, self-esteem, learn to listen better,....and community thru the power of percussion."
Drums Not Guns is a non discriminatory membership organization composed of all people. We welcome anyone who appreciates and values rhythm to join. We are cross-cultural and multi-cultural in our perspective. Drums Not Guns  seeks to nurture, celebrate and share our world's percussion traditions, both old and new. Drumming is worldwide. Drumming is a communal activity that brings people together and we believe that all traditions have something to offer our communities. We support efforts to develop, revitalize, and appreciate these traditions within the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, in Texas, North America and the world.  Please join
Drums Not Guns  and support this fine organization with your financial support.

Our goal is to promote the concept of non-violence through drumming. We believe that when people come together to enjoy and play music, greater communication and understanding are fostered and we are reminded of our common humanity and interreliance. Drumming builds community and expresses culture. We want to make drumming accessible to everyone, and to create safety and community so that people can experience drumming and dance as the powerful forms of self-expression they can be.
