Drummer plays world’s longest drum fill with 125 drums to support MusiCounts
September 30, 2021
Musora is partnering with MusiCounts to raise funds for music education across Canada.
Jared Falk, Founder and CEO of Musora Media, will be playing the world's longest drum fill, set to the Surfaris' song Wipeout to help raise funds for MusiCounts, Canada's music education charity. Falk will be jamming on a rig of 125 drums to the iconic surf rock track as a follow up to his 99+ drum performance of Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight”. Musora, home to education platforms Drumeo, Singeo, Guitareo, and Pianote, will be calling for donations to the charity and matching donations up to $50,000.
“When I was a kid I had access to a drum set and lessons. It set me on the path to creating Drumeo and sharing the gift of music with the world,” said Jared Falk. “But I know not all kids are so lucky, and many won’t ever get the chance to experience the life-changing power of playing an instrument. It’s why I’m so excited to be partnering with MusiCounts through the MusiCounts Band Aid Program to help provide instruments for schools and introduce a whole new generation to music. Hopefully, we can inspire the next generation of drummers.”
"We're so pleased to be working with Musora, an organization that shares our belief that music empowers youth to be their best selves," said Kristy Fletcher, Executive Director of MusiCounts. "Jared and the Musora team see every day what's possible when young people can experience music by learning an instrument, and together we're going to help more kids access that life-changing opportunity through the MusiCounts Band Aid Program."

Funds raised through the initiative will support the MusiCounts Band Aid Program, which awards grants of up to $15,000 to schools for musical instruments, equipment, and resources to help keep music education accessible, sustainable, and inclusive across Canada. In 2021, MusiCounts awarded $1M to 95 schools across the country in every province and territory.
