Our Main Workshop for the Day: Tools of the Trade

Even if you don’t want to pursue music as a full-time career, you should always be looking to push yourself to become a world-class drummer. But, just like a formula one driver won’t win a race in a minibus taxi, you won’t achieve your drumming potential without a few tools and tricks.

During this free drum month workshop, Lumanyano Unity Mzi will teach you some of the most valuable drumming tools and tricks to help you achieve new drumming heights. This is the ideal workshop for any drummer who needs to hone their soft skills and wants to learn a few new chops.
