Single Drum Theory with Jeff Towers 
The focus of this workshop is on minimalist playing, leaving room for acoustic instruments to shine. Specifically, he will teach you to be mindful of tones and frequency ranges so as to not overpower vocals, acoustic guitar, upright bass, fiddle or any other accompaniments. Jeff has been playing drums for over 30 years. He worked as a drum shop manager at Axe Music in Calgary from 2001 to 2014. He is currently endorsed by Mapex, Remo, Vater and Electrovoice Microphones.
