Mike Liston is the Founder of DrumBus,® LLC
Kids need more opportunities to move and play during the day! It's a no-brainer. Despite this fact, opportunities are being limited in their schools with budget cuts to music, physical education, art...even recesses are cut short for increased testing.
To provide one solution for this challenge, Mike Liston created the first DrumBus® to bring high-energy, group-rhythm events to schools.
Why Drumming? It is good for the body and the brain.
Drumming improves confidence, coordination, creativity and focus. And it helps build community & enhance collaboration while improving listening skills.
Why the DrumBus? It's affordable and convenient. We bring everything including the classroom. instruments, and facilitator. Also, having a separate, neutral space levels the playing field so all students feels safe to participate, regardless of age, ability or "status" within the school.

Owner DrumBus Utah
Nels has been facilitating drumming events since 2009 with Rhythms of Life and an owner of his own territory since 2013. He averages 25+ events/month in Salt Lake County engaging over 1,500 people monthly with group-drumming.
Nels sees the power of drumming play out on the groups he works with and on himself. “I love to see the walls of inhibition come crumbling down. Not only do I love to see it in others, but in myself. It brings out abilities in me I never thought possible.”
Nels’ loves his job, even on the days he is tired: “As soon as the drumming begins, and after, I feel so grateful for the experience.” Nels has noticed how easily people bond and get along after drumming together–children and adults.
