The Percussion Marketing Council is the only percussion trade association, representing the finest manufacturers, distributors, brands, and educational organizations in the percussion industry that share a common goal in creating new drummers. By working together with organizations like yours, the PMC can create more players and assure continuous development of new drummers. Playing a musical instrument is critical in a child’s development and a percussion instrument is a great and easy way to get youth involved in music.
MUSIC INDUSTRY: Open to all percussion/music industry manufacturers, distributors, and publishers. Join the leaders of our industry in developing and growing these exciting programs to strengthen business and create more drummers.
FRIENDS OF THE PMC brings a long-needed opportunity and answer to the many teachers, players, schools, studios, and retailers who’ve asked, “How can I get involved with the PMC and its programs?” Two new “Friends” categories have been created:
1) “Partners” level of support will be directed to colleges, universities, retail music stores, drum shops, non-percussion publications, and music/ percussion associations.
2) “Supporters” level of support will be directed to teachers, lesson studios, teaching websites, and individual players.
PMC Members are invited to attend Annual Open Forum and Friends of the PMC meetings as may be conducted throughout the year. The PMC Annual Open Forum is held in conjunction with the January Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA. Tentative plans are developing for the first Friends of the PMC meeting in conjunction with the Percussive Arts Society International Conference conducted in November of each year. These meetings provide clear information on what the organization is doing and how you can participate, benefit, and get involved in “growing the market” for NEW drummers.
