Anthony Fronza

Percussion Student

"Thom Callan is amazing! I did not have intentions to ever play drums professionally, but I was initially nervous for my first lesson. But, Thom eased my mind and got me excited about playing drums for fun. And, by my second lesson, Thom had already taught me how to play a song!"
