Welcome to the Official Website of the United States Association of Rudimental Drummers!
The USARD is dedicated to the Performance, Preservation and Promotion of the Art of Rudimental Drumming.
We encourages regional chapters that will meet to discuss, practice and perform. Members of the chapters meet annually for business and pleasure - mostly the pleasure of drumming!
Each year the convention features one or more special performer or prominent clinician. Individual and Ensemble (I and E) competition will be part of the organization's plan.
