Hamburg Percussion is happy to announce that it has contracted with Metrodata Services, Inc to provide Background Checks on all instructors and volunteers. As a husband and father, the safety of my family is a number one priority. It is my goal to assure parents that students feel confident that they have a safe atmosphere to learn. As New York and Pennsylvania move forward with mandatory background checks for educators and volunteers, I am being proactive with what I believe is important to all parents...ensuring the safety of our kids! So, the good news is that your drum teacher is not a scumbag! LOL! A Certificate of Background Check Completion from Metrodata is available on request, or you may contact them directly.
