Happy Holidays from Tapspsace!

Greetings! We recently had our company holiday party (also known as the Portland Holiday Ale Fest) and are feeling pretty festive. While we're busy with trade shows, holiday travel, and working on exciting new plans for 2017, we'd like to take a moment to thank you for your enthusiasm for what we do. We'd never be able to do what we do without your ongoing support. Thank you all!!

Warmest wishes to you and yours for a peaceful holiday season.


We're headed to Chicago for the annual Midwest Clinic (December 14-16) – one of the biggest events in the world for band and orchestra educators. We have a ton of new material this year and we'll be there in full force to show it all off! Come visit us in booth 1810 and get a free T-shirt with any $20+ purchase!

Wham Bam!

We've just put the finishing touches on Wham Bam! Bucket Jams. This is a brand new collection of 19 well-rounded, fun, and easy bucket drumming pieces geared toward elementary and middle school students.

Written by Nashville-based middle school band director and percussionist, Hunter Stricklin, each piece has a groovy backing track provided at 3 different tempos to make the learning process more fun! 


'Tis the season for giving, and if you have a special percussionist in your life, make their day a little brighter with one of these Holiday Gift Ideas (rather than that boring pair of socks). 

LAST MINUTE SHOPPERS! (you know who you are...) To ensure your holiday gift order arrives prior to December 23rd, we recommend you order this week! Depending on your location and chosen shipping method, we can't guarantee web orders placed after December 19th will arrive in time for the holidays unless you contact us to add expedited shipping.


They say everything's bigger in Texas. Judging by the number of Tapspace pieces on the UIL Prescribed Music List, that appears to be true! If you're a Texas music educator and still planning out your Spring percussion selections, we've put together a handy list of all the Tapspace titles on the UIL list, sorted by EVENT CATEGORY and GRADE.

Browse over 80 brand new pieces!

New Releases for 2016-17

In case you missed our grand tally last month, our latest collection of new releases tallies up at over 80 titles! All pieces have sample scores and audio and, in many cases, video. There are a number of new ensembles, solos, duets, and collections ranging all experience levels. So take a gander—we think you'll find some hits for your next percussion performance event!
