Empowering Youth Through Music Education

Who We Are

Huntsville Community Drumline offers an extracurricular option for youth to be involved in a positive, community-based activity. In addition to teaching drumming, a craft that will help participants compete for college scholarships, we focus on the development of self respect, respect for others, self discipline and pride in our community.
It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men

Help Us Make A Change

On average, Huntsville Community Drumline will spend $1,400 per student each year. This includes a training facility, professional music instruction, practice drums, performance drums, sticks, mallets, sheet music, practice pads, snacks, after school care, transportation to performances, leadership training, mentoring, enrichment activities, guest artists and much more.
These programs are free to students, and funded by grants, sponsorships, performance stipends, community and individual donations.
