In October of 2010, Arthur C. Turner III started the TKO drumline with seven dedicated youth at LoveWorks Academy for Visual and Performing Arts, Golden Valley, MN. Students spent three months of learning to read music and to apply proper percussion technique before receiving instruments. Since that time, TKO drumline has traveled throughout the East Coast and Midwest areas of the United States of America competing and performing for several events. Today we continue to teach universal music concepts while mentoring and uplifting the community youth. Along with LoveWorks Academy, Best Academy started a drum and drill program under the same philosophy and instructors. Both schools now perform together in unison. Through our motto “Discipline is essential”, we believe we can conquer any obstacle successfully. Our current staff are as follows: Arthur C. Turner, III (Coordinator/ music arranger) and Joseph Word (Asst./ conditioning and transport).
