Denney Drums

Under the direction of Chris Lawlor and Chris Watson, sponsored by the Remo company, the Denney Drums was launched in January of 2017. IAM started a weekly drumming class for elementary and middle school students, followed by a drumming class for the Denney Center teen program, centered around world drumming, experimenting with different rhythmic patterns and membrane instruments, as well as introduction to using percussion sticks. We thank the Walter Denney Youth Center, a part of the Boys & Girls Club of Dorchester, and their Unit Director Queenie Santos for partnering with us on this exciting venture.
