Getting this set up has been a simple but life-changing solution for me (and for my students)! Does anyone else deal with cascading hand drums? I know I did. You know, you stack them up with the smaller ones inside the bigger ones, but when the students go to put them back they have a really difficult time figuring out how to fit them inside each other, it takes too long, you end up just stacking them higher, and then the mountain falls apart 2 minutes after you walk away and move on with the lesson. And then all the students want to spend the next 10 minutes fixing them for you...

It makes my heart happy just looking at that shelf! The smaller drums are stored in pot lid storage racks like this one:
The larger ones are separated with a shelf like this:
I have used the hand drums with my students several times already this year, and we all love the new system! So much easier to take and put away the drums quickly. How do you store your hand drums? Share your ideas in a comment below!
