Philly Drum Project is a Percussive Collective dedicated to making drumming more accessible in the Philadelphia area by helping drummers in our region share Gear, Lessons, and Beats.


PDP was founded by Ryan Crump in 2011 with the aim of providing community resources for drummers of all backgrounds and experience levels.


The organization is run by an Advisory Committee and three operating committees: Gear Committee, Lessons Committee, and Beats Committee. For more info on joining one of our committees, email Ryan at
