Mr. William Ludwig III visited DGN Fine Arts today to make a special "History of Percussion" presentation to our North High percussion students.
Founded in 1909 and known the world over for their contributions to percussion, the Ludwig family has manufactured drums that have been used by millions of percussionists around the globe. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludwig_Drums
Mr. Ludwig is a graduate of Downers Grove North High School, having played in the DGN Bands under the direction of Mr. Lance Schulz. His daughter is currently a student at North High, and sings in the DGN Choirs.
Mr. Ludwig's new snare drum was unveiled last May: http://www.moderndrummer.com/site/2014/07/introducing-wfl-lll-drums-usa/
Thank you, Mr. Ludwig, for sharing your wealth of percussion knowledge with our students today!
