Who We Are

Welcome to NYC’s #1 Drum Teaching Studio.

Our Philosophy: Drumming is Joy
We’re a place where young or old, female or male, are welcome. Where those who have never touched a pair of sticks feel comfortable. Where children and adults learn from enthusiastic and patient teachers in a fun way. Where some students have lofty goals and some just want to see what drumming is like. We have a real, true, open door policy. The reason? We believe that “Drumming is Joy,” and we want to share that joy with anyone who wants to experience it.
