Music is a fantastic way for kids of all backgrounds and traditions to share and speak the same language. The performances/demonstrations will get you off your feet and moving! They are always great about getting the kids in the audience to participate and it is a memeorable experience for those in attendance. Thank you for your continued support!”

“On behalf of the Teen Night Out Organization for handicapped teens and their families, I would like to express our gratitude for the financial assistance your organization provided our group for the evening of percussion music demonstration by Joe Chila, owner of JC’s Drum Center/Rhythm Academy. Joe Chila provided an exciting evening of music on the drums and a variety of percussion instruments. Our teens had a great time experimenting with the different drums and Joe was a great inspiration for all our teens. He was very attentive with each individual and helped even the more reticent ones to participate and enjoy the variety of rhythms and music making.”
