Musicopia Drumlines

Musicopia Drumlines is an after-school percussion program with the goal of inspiring participants to:


  • Develop world-class music fundamentals, reading, and listening skills

  • Inspire a love of music and cultural pride that will last a lifetime

  • Learn crucial life skills such as discipline, self-confidence, teamwork, and an aspiration to push themselves to further accomplishments


Percussion has the unique power to engage students with no musical experience; our programs are successful because we center curriculum and pedagogy on their needs. Members consistently demonstrate high academic achievement, increased school attendance, and reduced disciplinary incidents. Musicopia Drumlines ensembles have won competitive titles and performed widely at parades, private venues, and professional sporting events.  


With no cost to participants, the program is open to 3rd – 12th graders of all skill levels and is currently comprised of ensembles at the following schools in Philadelphia.

  • Hill Freedman World Leadership Academy

  • Parkway Northwest

  • Olney Charter High School

  • Kensington Creative & Performing Arts High School 

  • William H. Hunter School

  • Bartram High School

  • Tilden Middle School

  • Sayre Middle School

  • Lindley Charter School

  • West Powelton Drummers and Steppers - community-based program serving the West Powelton neighborhood of West Philadelphia.
