Practicing for the next big iPad band performance!
Drumline is another unique program available to SAIC students. Much like our sports programming students learn the values of teamwork. They also learn to be adaptable as they may perform in a school concert one week, a parade the next, or give a show with the iPad band to a generous benefactor!

Whole school lip dubs are a thing of the past. We perform our own music using iPads and drumline. The whole school participates in the audio tracks. Then we film for the video.
