Drum Clinic with Paul Francis a Success

Recently, we hosted Grammy-winning drummer Paul Francis at a Jazz Drumming Workshop. Paul worked with MAGC drummers and students from around the community and taught them about jazz, drumming, and much more. Paul currently performs with Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett and can be heard on their Grammy-winning album "Cheek to Cheek." We are very proud of all the students who participated and look forward to the next master class!
