Discovery Center</strong> is one of 21 recipients selected to receive grant support from The NAMM Foundation. The funding will allow <strong>Rhythm!</strong> to continue to offer participatory music programs that increase exposure to music making and its myriad benefits to the Indianapolis community. The NAMM Foundation annually allocates $500,000 in funding to support innovative music learning programs, with the goal of expanding access to active music making.</span></span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: &quot;century gothic&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; color: black;">“NAMM Member support through participation at the NAMM Shows and membership in the association allow the NAMM Foundation to provide funding to worthy community–based music-making organizations,” said Mary Luehrsen, executive director of the NAMM Foundation. “We are honored to support this important program as together we work to expand opportunities for all persons, at every age to know the joys and benefits of making music.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: &quot;century gothic&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;">The “Find Your Rhythm! Community Outreach Program” is designed as a multi-faceted approach to provide primary school students access and inspiration to explore the benefits of making music and to encourage their participation in school music programs.<span>&nbsp; </span>The program is designed to reach students in the Indianapolis area school systems who are within a few years of enrolling in school music programs. With mounting evidence that students participating in music education improve in other academic areas, the need to recruit their participation in music is vital. The program contains two components. The initial experience is a guided tour of Rhythm! Discovery Center, or an in-school interactive demonstration. The experiences include a group rhythm event or drum circle that demonstrates the fundamentals of music and allows every student to experiment and experience music making in a non-threatening and fun environment. The second component is a family-oriented Saturday program series at Rhythm! in which families whose children participated in the “Find Your Rhythm” program enjoy Rhythm! free of charge during all events. The goal is to create an environment without barriers that will inspire children and families to participate in musical activities.<br /> <br /> With the NAMM Foundation’s generous support, Rhythm! has also announced the expansion of the Saturday Programs to occur each Saturday for the entire calendar year. The programs follow an easy 1st-2nd-3rd-4th Saturday schedule, with each program beginning</span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: &quot;century gothic&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;"> at 11am and included in the price of admission, or with a Rhythm!

Starting under the tutelage of Chick Webb, Blakey found his way through the jazz scene performing for band leaders like Fletcher Henderson and Billy Eckstein before finally moving on to form his influential jazz group The Jazz Messengers. Blakey’s distinct driving beat was easily identifiable by everyone around. He was truly a master at his craft and counted by many drummers and musicians as a teacher and mentor. <br /> <strong><br /> </strong>Regarded by Steve Reich as ‘one of the greatest percussionists of our time,<strong> </strong></span><strong><span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: &quot;calibri&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;">Steven Schick</span> </strong><span style="font-size: 10pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: &quot;calibri&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;">is a distinguished Professor at the University of California – San Diego and has held faculty positions at the Manhattan School of Music, the Genova Conservatory and the International Musikinstitut Damstadt. He is a founding member of the contemporary ensembles Bang on a Can All-Stars and red fish blue fish.

A winner of four Grammy Awards and multiple Grammy nominations and <em>DownBeat and DRUM</em> awards, Velez developed a global approach to modern frame drumming, while studying hand drumming techniques from South India, Central Asian, Arab, Persian, Brazilian, and Italian musics. His educational output to frame drumming, rhythm, composition, pedagogy, and improvisations helped create four unique schools of frame drumming in the USA.<br /> <br /> PAS Executive Director Jeff Hartsough stated “It is my privilege and distinct honor to announce the latest inductees into the Percussive Arts Society Hall of Fame.&nbsp; This is the society’s highest form of recognition of outstanding accomplishment and artistic contributions to the world of percussion. They will join a select group of only 114 percussionists chosen to receive this honor since its inception in 1972” <br /> <br /> The Percussive Arts Society Hall of Fame was established in 1972 to recognize the contributions of the most highly regarded leaders in percussion performance, education, research, scholarship, administration, composition and the industry. Inductees demonstrate the highest ideals and professional integrity to their profession to bring about significant events, substantive improvements in the world of percussion, and the betterment of the profession through exemplary services or acts. <br /> <br /> </span> http://www.pas.org/14-05-15/PAS_2014_Hall_of_Fame_Inductees.aspx maltizer http://www.pas.org/14-05-15/PAS_2014_Hall_of_Fame_Inductees.aspx 207c6274-60f1-42a9-8309-6ca4e2386e06 Thu, 15 May 2014 02:00:00 GMT Concert Chamber Percussion Ensemble Competition The purpose of the Concert Chamber Percussion Ensemble Competition is to provide a competitive avenue for collegiate and high school-level small "concert" percussion ensembles (6 members max.).<br /> <br /> This was an original entry in the yearly Marching Percussion Festival competitions.
