Hard to predict exactly how Valley girls will react to Instruments Of Art, the new exhibit gracing the halls of Westfield Topanga mall, a popular shopping Mecca in the northern Los Angeles suburb of Canoga Park.

Sponsored by Roland and the Grammy Museum, the one-of-a-kind, 1,000 square foot exhibit features an interactive display of Roland’s electronic musical instruments, including the HPD-10 HandSonic Percussion Pad and HD-1 V-Drums Lite. Visitors — amateurs and pros alike — are invited to groove on any of the company’s gear between trips to the food court. Please wash your hands first.

Roland percussion specialists will offer free one-minute drum lessons on July 10, 17, and 24 from 2:00–4:00 p.m. Afterward, the Roland Battery Band will perform from 4:00–7:00 p.m., showing off the mobility of the company’s latest lineup of battery-powered professional instruments and amplifiers.

Open to the public and free of charge, Instruments Of Art will be on display at Westfield Topanga through July 25, 2010. After that, the exhibit travels to other Westfield Mall locations throughout Southern California.
