TEACHING DRUM OUTDOOR SCHOOL is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization run by volunteer staff and volunteers. We run a tight budget in order to keep our programs and courses as affordable as possible. Our funding comes from program tuition, profits from Tamarack Song’s books, and donations from individuals like you.
