Drum and Percussion Ensembles

Our weekly group ensembles are a great way to learn the basics of hand drumming and percussion playing in a fun and social environment. Students get a chance to express themselves creatively while sharpening their rhythm, focus, listening skills, and ability to play with a group.

Drum Set Lessons

Little Ones Drum Circle

Kids from age 3-6 are welcome to join us for music and fun at the Little Ones Drum Circle! This weekly class introduces the kids to different drums and percussion instruments, and gives them a chance to experiment with sound. Our fun games and activities focus on keeping a steady beat, learning basic rhythms, moving and dancing to the beat, and singing classic kids songs.
