The SFCPA's comprehensive RhythmFUN! program

Our unique educational program enriches the lives of our students by providing the opportunity to learn music through drums and percussion. Children begin with listening and imitation games and develop into confident readers and performers. They learn the fundamental techniques of the entire percussion family, their origin, and cultural history. Musical ability and artistic expression progress in the context of a supportive group setting, emphasizing important life skills such as communication, comprehension, focus, perseverance, teamwork, and confidence. Classes encourage new friendships, and performances in the community build group pride.


Program is open to children ages 18 months to 18 years.

Join us every Saturday morning this summer! Children at this age are introduced to rhythm through listening and imitation games on various small percussive instruments, hand drums, and bells. 6-8 yr olds begin formal instruction on a variety of percussion instruments. This ongoing summer program is a great precursor for our RhythmFUN! Program in the Fall.

The SFCPA is a Knight Arts Challenge winning, non-profit organization dedicated to creating new and enhancing existing opportunities to study, perform, and enjoy music through percussion. Along with educational programs from classical to world percussion, we help make music accessible to our community through school presentations, workshops, and performances. We also meet a challenge of studying percussion: access to literature, instruments, and rehearsal space in our 2300 sq.ft. facility!

Free Friday Drum Jam | every Friday 7-9PM | all ages and abilities

Everyone is invited to try out the instruments, learn from one another, and just jam out!
