September 1 - Kids Rhythm Club @ Remo

Have you been to a Remo drum circle yet? It's Kids Jam Time. Where everyone gets permission to make noise which turns into rhythm and song!! Come & enjoy group drumming with your family and friends every Saturday morning and the first Sunday of each month. A kid's drum circle appears to build self-confidence, self-esteem, expands the musical imagination and nurtures creative thinking. Instead of "sit down", "be quiet", and "don't touch"; now it’s time to jam with parents and meet new friends! Parents and/or guardian must remain with children.
Where: The Remo Recreational Music Center - 7308 Coldwater Canyon, North Hollywood, CA 91605
When: 9:30 AM - 10:05 AM (Also at 11:00AM-11:45AM)
