We are thrilled to finally have dedicated an issue’s theme to the powerful women and girls of drumlines. Our feature story explored why there are so few females in drumline sections and how to encourage young girls to join them. We have provided a drumline glossary for the newbies, and tech pieces like, “How to Write a Cadence,” where we show you how to take your favorite song and transcribe it for drums. For our cover, we spoke with young vibraphonist Sasha Berliner who shook up the jazz world with a #metoo blog. We wondered if the Equal Rights Amendment would pick up steam again, asked Kim Schifino about Matt and Kim’s new album, talked mental health with Peach Kelli Pop and Bat Fangs drummers, and chatted with the drummer from Hamilton. Pick it up!
