Teens enjoy sharing music –  it opens the doors for better cultural understanding and tolerance. Music instruction during youth is known to:

  • ~ Improve SAT score averages
  • ~ Boost creative skills valuable for work life success

Adults find playing an instrument – re-visiting the band instrument of their youth, or learning the instrument of their dreams – can be a great stress reliever.  Music lessons as an emotional outlet can reduce ‘job burnout’.

Drummers’ Bash a Big Hit!

City Music’s Drummers’ Bash

What fun!  Our first Drummers Bash was great.  The weather held out nicely, and City Music’s Rockin’ All Star Staff played on.  Thanks to all the visiting drummers that sat in with the All Star Staff (Johnny ‘Romance’ Nickerson, Rampage Bassist Iain Perry and our own ‘ Superhero’ Andy Cummings)  Special thanks to our drum staff Greg Prendergast and Chris Landry for their rhythm demos on the kit, cahons and djembes.

Lots of drummers joined our drum circle, hosted by Chris Landry, with a little help from Fitchburg Middle school’s ‘Shake, Rattle & Drum’ group.   We got a taste of hand drumming in the styles of several cultures.  Chris will be hosting a Drum Circle at City Music in Leominster on October 25th (Sign-up is required.  Fee: $5 per person.  Bring your own drum).  Chris is also accepting hand percussion students Thursday afternoons – see our Leominster music store of details.
