Toddler Playing Drums


Fun with drums. Fabulous food from local chefs. Outdoor activities for the whole family. And more drums!


Nashville music educator, Stephie Gee, is launching a YouTube drum tutorial channel for children and young adults who want to get started with drumming. The goal of the channel, Encouraging Beats, is to help kids and teens boost their self-esteem and build their confidence through learning the drums.

To kick off the Encouraging Beats YouTube channel, she will be hosting a family-friendly event on April 23rd from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the newly renovated Dream Streets location on 2030 25th Avenue North.


> Kids can enjoy fun lawn games and face painting

> Play unique instruments at the percussion petting zoo

> Immerse yourself in interactive group drumming experiences led by

internationally-trained drummers

> Savor amazing food from local eateries

> Win exclusive door prizes and giveaways!

The event will also be LIVESTREAMED on YouTube for those unable to attend in person. Online viewers who subscribe will also have the chance to enter the raffle drawing for prizes. Stay tuned for more details!

The launch party will culminate with the world premiere of the Encouraging Beats channel, with several of Gee's students performing along with the videos. Along with special guest appearances, this event will be an occasion the whole family can enjoy, bringing the Nashville community together in a fun and meaningful way.


You won't want to miss this historic event. Make musical memories with the family, drum your heart out, taste local cuisine, and listen to some Encouraging Beats!

“Our family is so grateful to have found Ms. Stephie as a music teacher. Since she has started working with my eleven year-old son, his playing has improved so much. She is so knowledgeable and kind and does a great job of keeping my child focused while still listening to what he has to say. Stephie has sparked his creativity and he looks forward to his lesson every week.”
