Master percussionist and LP Artist, Giovanni Hidalgo recently completed a string of wildly successful clinics around the world, but none were as memorable as his October 19th engagement at the Guitar Center in Hallandale, FL. With well over 200 eager fans in attendance, Giovanni interactively taught and performed for over three hours and left the crowd still wanting more.
"This clinic is one of the most successful ones we've ever had," remarked Don Rodrigues, Guitar Center Regional Vice President. "Thanks to our great partnership with LP and a great artist and clinician like Giovanni Hidalgo, we were able to let people know that our Hallandale store is the place to go in the Miami area for all things percussion."
"I spoke to many of the people in attendance and they could not say enough about how Giovanni both taught and inspired them," added Store Manager, Collin Grant. "He's humble, grateful and passionate about his music and the people that listen to it."
After the clinic Giovanni stayed an additional hour and a half to talk to visitors, pose for pictures and sign autographs. Many LP door prizes were awarded during the evening, including LP Mini Congas, Egg Shakers, Finger Shots, Claves and Qube Shakers.
