In Italy there is a dense undergrowth of music school, multimedia and promotional resources concerning the world of drums and percussion, but none big, complete or structured enough and none managed in a reliable way by skilled personnel able to manage and to officially represent its national education as the Drummers Channel Made in Italy aims to be.
Therefore this is a commitment, a responsibility and an honor to the teaching service and the enhancement of the musical staff of our country, promoted energetically towards the Peninsula and the whole world.
