Help PDP Make Drumming Accessible!

Happy 2015! We're restructuring some things and adding membership levels to be able to more effectively offer member benefits! Please make a gift today at one of these levels below - thank you for your support!

Supporting Members - $20-$50 per year: In order to provide access to drums and education, we need to pay the bills! Our Supporting Members make that happen. Since our revenue streams are limited and our vision is ambitious, we need a strong base of supporters to keep the mission alive and well. Plus, 50 bucks is a great price for 11 events and access to our network of drummers! Supporting Members have editing access to add upcoming gigs to our PDP Member Gigs Calendar!

Sustaining Members - $10-$30 per month: These members help us take our programming to the next level. Our Sustaining Members believe in the mission of Philly Drum Project and make it a part of their life by budgeting it alongside their coffee and Spotify purchases. These members are the reason that we are able to bring in big names like Ari Hoenig, Mark Colenburg, and Brian Frasier Moore to run workshops with members and students.

Philly Drum Project's 2014/15 season is underway and needs your support! This campaign will allow PDP to continue offering drum-centered education and networking events for students and adults, including: 
-   DrumPhil - a one-day drumset workshop for high school students
-   Beats, Brews, & Banter - a networking and clinic event for adults, featuring a great local drummer each month
-   And our brand new program: ReDrum - providing refurbished drums and drum lessons to community centers in under-served areas of Philadelphia

Our wishlist options are:
-   Fund a DrumPhil Student: this gift will cover the cost for one of our 12 high school students to attend our summer program. This includes food for the day as well as a private lesson, group workshops, and collaborative composition sessions with expert instructors who teach at the university level or who record and perform with nationally-renowned artists! 
-   Fund a Beats, Brews, & Banter: this gift will cover the cost of one of our free monthly networking events with a featured drummer.  Your support will help us continue to bring in high-quality drummers to this event - like past guests Eric Slick (Dr. Dog), Spanky McCurdy (Lady Gaga), Tre Lambert (Tye Tribbett), and Fred Berman (Amos Lee).  

Your support at ANY level will help us carry out our mission: to make drumming more accessible in the Philadelphia region by helping those in our area share Gear, Lessons, and Beats.

If you believe in the community-building power of drums, please make a gift today!
