Scott and everyone with drumSTRONG are extremely caring and giving people. I had a drum student diagnosed with leukemia and was only given a couple of weeks to live. Scott assembled a drum circle within a matter of days at my student's house to provide some fun, relaxation and rhythmic therapy for family and friends. It was amazing. He went well out of his way to bring a couple of hours of joy to this young student. We also live close to 3 hours away from drumSTRONG headquarters. Not only that, but Scott was able to use his sources and get an inspirational email from the student's favorite drummer. All of this happened in the nick of time. He passed away only two weeks after the drum circle. The memories of that day will live on forever with me and all of his family and friends. It brings a smile to everyone's face in the wake of such heartbreak and sadness. Thank you to everyone associated with drumSTRONG and especially, Scott.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the impact drumSTRONG had on the family and friends of my drum student who was diagnosed with leukemia.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

no changes need to be made
