It's the end of the week, so let's celebrate with some free stuff.
Let's start with music.
The Scottsdale Music Academy is having a free drum clinic for all ages on February 16th from noon to 1:00 p.m.
You'll learn drum techniques and various styles of music.
You can call or email to register and space is limited so don't wait.
To register call the Scottsdale Music Academy at 602.751.3537 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you prefer to sit back and enjoy the music, head downtown on Wednesday from 11:30 to 1:00 p.m. for an afternoon concert series.
It's at Civic Space Park every Wednesday on the amphitheater stage.
An Urban Latino pop and rock band will be performing next week.
There is not only free music, but there are also food trucks for you to eat at...or simply bring your own food and have lunch while listening to some good tunes for free.
