We're open & vibing!
Update January 2022: Due to the DC vaccination mandate, starting January 15th, all guests must show proof of vaccination (January 15th: 1 shot, February 15th: 2 shots). COVID-19 has been tough, but with more and more folks vaccinated, it's starting to feel back to normal. We still aim to provide a safe environment for all patrons and staff and abide by CDC guidelines.
Lesson Updates: We are now back to full capacity with in-person lessons with all 15 teachers and with all instruments. All of our teachers are vaccinated and have at least one day physically teaching at 7DrumCity. Virtual lessons are still an option for anyone interested.
Also, we are back to hosting in-person shows (proof of full vaccination required) at The Pocket.
We enable hobbyists to live balanced and fulfilling lives through music.

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.

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!
