We Got the Beat is a fun, interactive, hands-on, musical experience for students in 2nd to 8th grade from the greater Fresno/Clovis Metropolitan area. Lead by local musician and educator, Brenda Myers, WGTB is made up of three distinct programs: Adventures in Drumming, Summer Drum Camp, and We Got The Beat Youth Percussion Band.
The mission of WGTB is to provide a comprehensive musical experience for children that enriches both the individual and the community. Our vision is to develop music appreciation, performance skills, and proficiency on diverse percussion instruments while providing life skills that will take children well-beyond their WGTB experience. We promote creativity through improvisation and composition while teaching responsibility, cooperation, leadership and teamwork through instrument care, practice, solo, and group performance.
