ALUMNI
You set records. You break boundaries. You shape the future, but you never forget where you came from. You are alumni of Gridbook Academy, and you honor Gridbook Nation in everything you do.
Long after you achieve your goals, and move onto the next chapter of your life, you fly the Gridbook Nation flag. Our united vision is spread across the globe, making you part of something bigger than yourself. Together with your fellow alumni, you are defining the culture and inspiring the next generation of percussionists.

While your time in Gridbook Academy may be over, you have left your mark and set the standard so others may pick up the torch and carry on. Whether you are still in the percussion community changing lives, or have transitioned into other fields, we are so proud of the work you have done here.
