It’s time to dust off the cobwebs and get your drum in playing condition for this season (and keep it that way for many more)! Please join us online for a workshop with Kenny Avery of Avery Drum Company to learn how. Kenny will go over day-to-day drum care and upkeep, what to do before and after playing, how to take care of your sticks, dealing with inclement weather, and discuss some common sense do’s and don’ts. There will be plenty of time for Q&A as well!
