Society of International Rudimental Drummers

The Society of International Rudimental Drummers (“Society” or SIRD) is a non-profit organization founded in 2018 in Paris by Drummers from 15 countries.

SIRD is a global movement to:

  • Share knowledge and innovation in Rudimental Drumming globally
  • Provide a forum for the exchange of information on Rudimental Drumming
  • Educate and Coach young talent
  • Officially represent Rudimental Drumming and act as an ambassador to support the needs and the progress of its chapters
  • Organize and promote events and gatherings for the group
  • Build a library to protect the knowledge and literature on rudimental drumming for today and future generations

Share The Tradition

Sharing the tradition (#sharethetradition) is also about sharing valuable goods, such as know-how and common literature. We want to provide relevant information and knowledge on drum literature, that makes a difference.
