Icon Collective visits artworxLA to surprise them with a brand new TAMA drum set for their students to use in music class.
Icon’s Industry Advisor Nik Cherwink visited artworxLA in Hollywood to help with their music programs vision to influence and inspire students. During the visit, Nik discovered the students had a used and abused drum set in their music class. Without hesitation, Nik saw an opportunity to make a positive change and pulled Icon’s resources to surprise the students with a brand new TAMA drum set.
After joining artworxLA for a site visit last December, Nik noticed our worn out drum set. With whiplash speed, Nik came back to surprise the students with a brand new drum set. Now our students can improve their mastery of music and continue to be creative. artworxLA
