"As quarantine subsided, I felt an overwhelming need to perform live music for an audience, which we had all been missing. In 2021, we introduced the TAPS LA Music Festival, which included performances of new music in outdoor venues, and the same percussion seminar that we’d offered in the past, with an important change: each student would attend the seminar tuition-free."

- Ted Atkatz, Artistic Director
