Play for Peace
Peace Drums Project facilitates classes and performances for young children with steel drums to have positive experiences and build community, regardless of religious, cultural, and social differences.
We are here to bring young people together through facilitated group learning and performance in steel bands and drum lines to have positive experiences and build community, regardless of religious, cultural, and social differences.
We believe that by giving the opportunity to children to connect, we can solve a lot of future issues. We know children don’t care about their differences. They just want to play. So let’s play music!
We did several concerts in the Philadelphia and none in a more beautiful setting than Congregation Rodeph Shalom. The students were thrilled to perform in front of 400 people.
During this 2-day workshop, you’ll learn everything you need to know about the steel drum, from its history to teaching techniques, and arranging musical pieces.
