DETROIT DRUMLINE is dedicated to:
Preserving a long standing drumming tradition that exists in our community.
Working directly with our youth to expose them to various art forms
Develop leadership and discipline through hands-on, fun learning of rudiments for students ages 8-18.
Each year, Detroit Drumline will hosts a variety of enriching events for youth which include one day mini camps, school workshops, master classes and a college Career Day trip for students.
The Career Day event allows the Detroit Drumline instructors to select up to 40 dedicated music students to visit a specified college or university campus while participating in the University's Career Day activities.
Career Day participants will learn about scholarship opportunities and visit with the University music department.
The workshops offer students the opportunity to learn innovative techniques, meet and greet with legendary percussionists from around the world, and motivate the students to remain actively engaged with their music education.
