United Percussion and Arts is a special non-profit entity that develops young people through music. Specifically percussion performance. It is truly remarkable to see the growth and development of the youth and how many life lessons and skills are learned. On the outside it would seem that the organization only provides world class percussion instruction...when in reality the kids not only get that, but learn how to multitask, how to manage time, how to budget, how to fundraise, how to be accountable, how to be professional. The organization also applies it's musical instruction to "real world" concepts and social issues that affect us all. I would not hesitate to give to this group.
