Philly Drum Project is dedicated to making drumming more accessible in the Philadelphia region by helping those in our community share knowledge, beats, and gear. We're teaming up with our members, artists, and friends to expand music education accessible in Philadelphia. Whose team are you on? Choose from the Perk list on the right. Your $10 gift will make a huge impact on our community!

We're participating in #GivingTuesday to relaunch our Re-Drum Rhythm Sessions - free community center group drum lessons! In 2015, you helped us fund the pilot program of Re-Drum Rhythm Sessions, to refurbish 2 unwanted drumsets and provide them to the community for weekly group drum lessons for the community. Students learn about the role of the drumset in rock, jazz, reggae, and hip hop, and have had a safe community to get involved with after school once a week. The class also focuses on peer mentorship, as older, more experienced players help the younger players. It's an important program to make sure that everyone in Philly has access to quality musical education and instruments. 

We need to raise $2000 in just one day! We need YOU to join a #team and give just $10 to help support Rhythm Sessions by running another program in North Philly AND add a second location in West Philly! That's why your donation of 10 bucks makes a huge difference in making sure that students in the city have the resources to learn drums, regardless of their experience or financial background. Help us make a difference!

*Thanks to our fiscal sponsor, CultureTrust Philadelphia, your donation is now tax-deductible! 


Thank you!

A few notes from past PDP Students:

Lucy Kates:My experience at the Philly Drum Project was awesome! I learned so much during the short time of one day. All of the instructors were very experienced and taught very well. They gave very individualized lessons which was great because of the wide range of experience among the students. I would recommend this program to anyone that wants to improve on their drumming skills.

Timothy Parsons: "For me, DrumPhil was an experience beyond great. The students get so much out of one day, and it is such an eye-opening experience. Not only will you learn; you will make a bunch of new friends, meet some great drummers, and come home with a handful of new gear. It was my first time last year so I didn't know anybody, but the returning students came up to me and we just started talking and it was smooth sailing from there. It is the friendliest, non-competitive environment I have ever encountered, which just makes it even better. It doesn't matter how bad, or good, you think you are, everybody learns and everybody plays because its what they enjoy doing. Yeah, I got smoked by some of the guys there, but I learned from what they played and now I'm better because of it. The teachers are some of the best guys in the area, and are also very friendly and enthusiastic to teach. And, finally, you get to experience a great campus that is The University of The Arts in Philly and talk to some of the instructors there, which gets you information and that first step to applying if you want to do drumming or music as a career. All in all, it is a great experience and you will most definitely be grateful for everything that PDP works so hard to make happen."
