Today marks Badges Drum Shop's First Anniversary. On November 23, 2018, I opened with the dream of serving the local drumming community, never imagining such friendship and unwavering support. While I've always believed it, you've offered proof that drummers are among the most genuine and supportive people -- the very heart of music and certainly of this little shop. I can't thank you enough.
TO OUR CUSTOMERS
I built this for you and, wow, did you show up. I noticed when you came to me instead of ordering online or going to a big store. I noticed when you sent your friends in, shared my posts online, and gave me encouraging reviews. I noticed when you entrusted me with your precious gear to tune up or sell. Thanks for giving me hope that I could turn my little drum shop dream into a longstanding reality.
TO AREA SCHOOLS AND CHURCHES
Every place of learning and worship needs great drums, and I'm appreciative to the organizations that chose to source instruments at their local drum shop instead of from a catalog. We enjoyed helping going the extra mile for you and look forward to doing so again.
TO BADGES DRUM SHOP TEACHERS
A special thanks to our pro instructors Nick Hach and Todd Remmy who share with students of all ages the joy of learning how to drum. Thank you for making our drum lesson program positive and top-notch.
TO OUR STUDENTS
Our students inspire us with their passion for learning and with their commitment to practice, show up for lessons, and do the hard work that turns everyday people into music makers.
