Who Are We
A Drummers World Drum Line Performing Arts School is the first performing arts school of its kind ever in Wayne County or any surrounding counties.
Alando Mitchell is the founder of ADWP with the vision of giving youth something new, positive, and fun to be apart of in their community instead of getting involved with all of the violent activities that are going on in our city and county. Our city has been named as one of the worst cities to live in our state because of the crime, violence, and economic poverty.
We encourage our youth to become good citizens now as well as in the future through teaching our character program such as respect, integrity, sharing, caring, responsibility, good attitude, ABC’s of life and uniqueness.
A Drummers World was started in October of 2006 by Alando Mitchell just as a drum line to give youth something positive to be apart of in our city. It started with 20 students, it quickly grew to 40 by January of 2007 to include the beginners, intermediate, and performance drum line better known as IronSheild who quickly became the communities favorite show drum line in our city.
To Bring the community together through performing arts.
To create and provide a fun learning educational environment and life enrichment opportunities for youth who desire to be apart of something positive in their community as they improve the quality of the their lives.
