JC’s Drum and Music Academy Hosts Yearly Percussion Day

Experience the joys of drumming at JC’s Drum and Music Academy on Sunday, November 22 from 2 – 4 p.m. as they showcase their fall KidzRock classes, followed by their Annual Percussion Day Event. The best part? It’s all FREE!

Kidzrock is a national program that introduces 4 to 7-year-old students to music. Students rotate on the three most popular instruments: piano, guitar, and of course, drums. JC’s is the only music school in Michigan to offer these classes. “It’s been a very enjoyable experience for kids and parents. The students have been very successful being exposed to the instruments in this way and we’ve sold out most classes since the Fall of 2014, says school director Joe Chila, ‘the drum guy.’”

Drum CircleOnce a year JC’s hosts “Percussion Day” featuring their students, and culminating with a community Drum Circle, which starts at 6 p.m. Students will perform solos on various drums and percussion. All students are encouraged to write and arrange their own drums songs. Most will perform on a variety of drums, cymbals, hand drums as well as some melodic instruments like marimba. Drumming relieves stress, keeps your brain sharp, and is just plain FUN! Everyone’s invited and you can either use their drums or yours.

JC’s Drum and Music Academy is located at 410 South Street in Rochester, MI. For more info, call  at (248) 601-3786.
