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 returns soon | every Friday 7-9PM | all ages and abilities

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