Job Title
Company Name
Donn Bennett Drum Studio

Donn Bennett had the happy "accident" of falling into the retail music business.  As a young drummer he had to pay for his own lessons, which led to him teaching drums to some of his friends in the neighborhood. When he gained a full schedule of students it led to having accessories and instruments to sell, which led to him moving the growing operations out of his house and into his first store!  While growing the company, he instituted programs, clinics, sales and events that helped make his store the place drummers wanted to be, it became a family!
