Query: Miriam's drum, singing, dancing

I am looking for midrashic material on Miriam’s drum (tof) as well as the mention of her and the Israelite women’s singing and dancing at the Red Sea (Exodus 15:20 – 21).  I have already gone through most of the basics and am surprised to find very little comment on these verses, other than the statement that the Israelite women equipped themselves with musical instruments in preparation for the Exodus (as in PRE 41).  I would appreciate greatly any midrashic sources and/or studies that refer to this subject.
