Welcome to the new Rhythm! Scene, the official blog of the Percussive Arts Society!
As the editor of this digital resource, I could not be more excited!
R!S has always been a free digital publication, and in the six years of its existence, has proven to be a valuable source of information and engaging articles for a broad spectrum of our percussion community. However, digital is about the “now,” and distributing a digital publication every other month like traditional magazines obviously isn’t ideal. Too often in the past, we’d find ourselves holding news about new products, industry announcements, or exciting happenings within our percussion community for weeks simply because the information missed a deadline by a few days. With the R!S Blog, that will no longer be the case!
You will still see all the things you’ve come to expect from Rhythm! Scene: a product showcase, industry news, quality articles about activities and individuals within our percussion community, Hall of Fame bios, PAS Profiles, HotLicks, R!Solos, and more. Rather than coming out in one larger publication every other month, however, content will be posted to the R!S blog as often as three times a week.
So, subscribe, check-in regularly, tell others about this resource, and if you are so inclined, contribute articles, interviews, or news of your own. In order for this resource to be most impactful, news and content should be generated from and by you, our percussion community, so if you have an idea for an article, e-mail me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And again, let me say, “Welcome to the new Rhythm! Scene!”
