Even though tongue drums are intuitive instruments, Beat Root wants to teach everyone how to improvise notes to create new rhythms with their hands or the sticks provided.
In order to accompany players on their musical adventure, we offer free video tutorials to help Beat Root tongue drum owners learn how to create new melodies.
