Mission

Our Mission

Chicago Percussion is a Youth Music Organization founded in 2020 to serve as an artistic, educational, and competitive percussion ensemble for Chicago and surrounding areas. We seek to be one of Chicago's first formalized entry-points into this music and movement based activity, and to use performance and skill training to accomplish our Primary Mission: developing students as musicians and artists while also teaching them life lessons in teamwork, individual responsibility, creative expression, and goal achievement. To accomplish this, Chicago Percussion provides a platform that is built on music education, performance training, and community service, as well as physical fitness and personal responsibility development. The life skills and work ethic performers develop by participating in the Chicago Percussion program will have a trickle down effect to every aspect of our participants' life, helping to shape them into successful young adults who are prepared to become leaders in their respected industries and achieve their goals in any field.
