Dear Joe,

The drumming experience was awesome!! It was so nice for my entire class to participate in something. Even my students who said "no" in the beginning were making up their own beats by the end!! The instructor was great and engaging.

Dear Joe,

The students appeared to enjoy the drumming presentation, as well as the experience of drumming.  Many reported that they loved it, and stayed after to thank the presenter.  I observed students sharing different drums spontaneously, in order to allow each other the opportunity to experience the different styles.  In addition, I saw students help one another.  A young man was frustrated that he couldn't get the rhythm.  The student next to him first tried to show him, and then asked to help him.  These two students interacted together in a very positive way, which is not what we typically see.  I think that this experience was very powerful for many of the students.

"JC Drumming is always an eager participant of Hampton Elementary's Annual Cultural Fair! They do a fantastic job of sharing their love for rhythm and cultural beats with our community. Music is a fantastic way for kids of all backgrounds and traditions to share and speak the same language. The performances/demonstrations will get you off your feet and moving! They are always great about getting the kids in the audience to participate and it is a memeorable experience for those in attendance. Thank you for your continued support!"

Dear Joe,

"On behalf of the Teen Night Out Organization for handicapped teens and their families, I would like to express our gratitude for the financial assistance your organization provided our group for the evening of percussion music demonstration by Joe Chila, owner of JC's Drum Center/Rhythm Academy. Joe Chila provided an exciting evening of music on the drums and a variety of percussion instruments. Our teens had a great time experimenting with the different drums and Joe was a great inspiration for all our teens. He was very attentive with each individual and helped even the more reticent ones to participate and enjoy the variety of rhythms and music making."
