Hello Everyone,

I’m sorry for this late assignment post. I have been posting the homework on my page which hasn’t set up properly.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

I will be away on October 13th, and David Zada who is one of the drum teachers at ABC academy is going to teach you all. He is an amazing musician and educator. I’m sure that you all will have a wonderful time with him.

This is the assignment for this week,
