The repetitive rhythm patterns and catchy melodies of Drumming About You inspire people who have disabilities. Consumers, their families, and their service providers take part together in an accessible, musical medium that encourages socialization.

"I know that so many children with autism will continue to experience great joy and so many families will find opportunities to share their children's joy due to the wonderful experiences that Bob provides."
