AJ's Pro Percussion

Grace Altieri has a background in law but was willing to put that career on hold when her husband decided to open a drum shop in Tampa. AJ was working for a local music store and was really growing the drum segment of the business, so, when a chance came along to open his own store he jumped at it. Grace soon took over the books, the sales and sheet music department and found that as the store grew so did her love of the industry. Grace recalls many meaningful memories of the ten years she and AJ owned the store including several late night jam sessions and successful clinics in the store.
