is an exciting drumline opportunity for students between the ages of 5 and 15 years old. Students in Cruzline come from all over the city. Kids from different backgrounds, schools, and districts come together once a week to learn how to play each drumline instrument: Snare Drum, Bass Drum, and Quads. At the end of each semester/session, the Cruzline puts on an exciting show to share with friends and family! The shows are always filled with smiles, excitement and surprises.
This program involves students of all levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. This program is not just for boys but girls as well. Once you see them perform and display their talents you would think they have been playing for years. Cruzline is under the leadership of instructor Sal Cruz.

Signing up for a session means that the student is financially responsible for all lessons. Payment can be made in full, monthly or weekly.
We regret that we cannot make up a lesson if a student has to cancel. Since this is a performance based business, payment for that lesson is still expected. If CruzLine Percussion has to cancel, that lesson will be made up at a specified date.
