“We are excited to be back with version 2.0 of the Drum fight show. This show promises to be more fast-paced and action packed.” said Jared Feldman, Founder, Music School Inc and creator of DRUM FIGHT.
The event will also include a lecture and demonstration by DAD Founder Pat Gesualdo, a first for a Drum Fight and a move towards fulfilling the hopes and dreams of drummers across the island, regardless of disability.
“Drum Fight is just another example of how the DAD Program and Music School Inc. are working together to be the exclusive provider for Drum Therapy services for disabled children and adults on Long Island,” said Pat Gesualdo, DAD Program President and CEO. “It is a great honor to join forces with Jared and the entire staff at Music School Inc., to expand the DAD Program via the Drum Fight event, which drummers all over the tri-state area look forward too.”
DAD is a groundbreaking non-profit organization that was launched by award winning drum virtuoso-author-clinician Pat Gesualdo. DAD is certified as a teacher-training program by the New Jersey Department of Education, and numerous psychologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and teachers throughout the world, use the DAD Program, to help special needs children develop retention, coordination, self-esteem, and physical and cognitive functioning.
The event will be held at the Crazy Donkey on Route 110 in Farmingdale, New York, with a ticket price of $10.
