Tom Tom Magazine™ is the only magazine in the world dedicated to female drummers. We are a 74 page full color quarterly print magazine, website, events, social media community, academy and more. Tom Tom serves as the ultimate go-to guide for the latest information about girl drummers and beat makers around the globe. We seek to raise awareness about female percussionists from all over the world and hopes to inspire women and girls of all ages to drum, all while strengthening and building the community of otherwise fragmented female musicians. We cover drummers of all ages, races, styles, skill level, sexualities, body size and notoriety. We are also a proud producer and creator of the Hit Like a Girl Contest. The only contest for female drummers in the world.

Tom Tom Magazine is more than just a magazine it is a movement. Join us.
