Emerson Drummers- Tuesday nights in Marietta  members-

        The Emerson Drummers are now playing in their 28th year together!!  This group was begun with members of the Emerson Unitarian Congregation, and has grown over the years with hundreds of drummers of all levels passing through the group.  It is not strictly a beginner class, but we do have brand new drummers regularly joining the group.  The group has a strong welcoming spirit and sense of community sharing.  And with many experienced drummers taking part, you will really be lifted by the power of the rhythm. 

7-8:30pm every Tuesday night, $20 per class drop-in rate for new members. Your first class is FREE. When you are ready to join the performing group your discount fee is $65 per month with your commitment. We meet in the warm months, including April, at East Cobb Park in Marietta, in the pavilion closest to Roswell Road just behind the kids' playground. In cooler months (November-March) we meet in the Fellowship Hall at Emerson Unitarian Congregation, 4010 Canton Road, Marietta GA 30066. Loaner drums and sale drums available by prior request for class- please let us know.
