THE DRUM SCHOOL
The Drum School was originated in 1989, a year after the creation of the Drummers Association, with the aim of promoting the drumming among the youngest residents in Mula. In school, the pupils learn the traditional drumming and how to assembly the drums, as well as values such as respect and participation in the “tamborada” (drum parade).
The instructors, who are experienced drummers, teach the pupils how to play the drum, using a method based in the school own nomenclature Throughout the year, the pupils practise with big lorry inner tubes.
Every year, in the previous days to the Drums Night, it takes place the “Closing Ceremony” in the theatre Lope de Vega. This ceremony marks the end of the school course and the pupils show what they have learned.
