  • Band Director:
    Marcie Chapa

    Marcie Chapa is a noted percussionist with a love for music and a passion for education in the arts. At the early age of 12, she began pursuing a career in the music industry with relentless tenacity. School competitions and contests, not only challenged her but also financed her way to the illustrious New School for Jazz and Contemporary School of Music in New York City. While attending the school, she was chosen to represent NSJCSM in an exclusive summer program in Italy. By 18, Marcie was performing professionally for crowds of thousands while perfecting her craft once inspired by percussion greats, Tito Puente, Sr., Karl Perazzo, Giovanni Hidalgo and many others. Marcie has been kept very busy for the last few years as the touring percussionist for Pop Diva Beyonce. In addition, she has been the percussionist for the house band for Black Girls Rock for four years. Currently Marcie is gigging (percussion) with Stephanie Mills and performing one-offs with Ceelo Green and The Nth Power. While off the road Marcie is teaching and sharing her talent through schools transforming music programs. Not to mention you can catch Marcie performing throughout the city in a wide range of styles (jazz, rock, funk, and latin), from drums to percussion on any given night.
