  My wife used to take drum lessons here
by Matthew W.

My wife used to take drum lessons here in the eighties, I think she met the drummer for Dokken, or Cinderella here. She has a picture of her, a cute little junior high rocker chick with some sleazy hair band drummer who was already feeling his fame slip from between his fingers. Good stuff. They hold drum workshops here all the time hosted by some pretty well known drummers. Which is cool I guess.
