Drumz December Class Schedule 2015

We are in the last days of 2015 now and classes at DRUMZ will soon be  winding down until the new session in January 2016! Where did the year go?  So many amazing students, old and new, and so many fun & exciting classes happened in this year... it's hard to keep up with them! I appreciate each of you and thank-you so much for your support of  Drumz as a small, local Austin business and me as a teacher...I have learned much from YOU! I look forward to the remaining December classes and I know the new year will bring much joy and growth and learning for us all, through our music and through all of our experiences in life! May we find the means to access the peace and joy within and the passion and commitment to spread that peace far and wide in the year to come and may peace prevail not just on Earth, but WITH Earth, in the year to come. 

With much gratitude, Sherry
