Check out our vibe and story:
7DC has been a second home and family for me. It is not only a place to practice and learn music, it is also a community that stems out into different events such as Flashband.

Their teachers don't just show you how to play drums, they share their passion for music with you and help you develop your own.
- Brandon C
The 7DC team has effortlessly made me feel comfortable, assisted, and welcomed. It's very easy to book a room online and I enjoy the personal contact I have with my teacher and the managing staff.
7DC is a warm and welcoming place. Great community!
