It’s so important for drummers to learn music in a musical context. In each camp we’ll provide plenty of playing opportunities both in percussion ensembles and also in a real life band with our guest artists (guitarist, bassist and keyboardist).

Each day we’ll work on drum set, hand drumming/percussion, and tonal percussion (marimba, xylophone, vibes and timpani). Activities include:

  • Lots of improvisation
  • Playing in a band with our guest artists
  • Hand and feet technique, reading and writing music
  • Daily percussion ensembles: structured pieces and in-the-moment playing on hand percussion & sound tree
  • Drum set round robin – play on two sets with other drummers
  • Efficient and effective practice techniques
  • Practical skills: drum setup, tuning, and types of gear
  • Basics of recording and technology (if time)

Bring your stick bag with sticks, brushes, mallets, a bottle of cold water and a bagged lunch, and get ready to have a fun and intense time each day enjoying a great adventure through the world of drums & percussion.

$350 for the week. Space is limited to no more than 7 per camp. Some scholarship money available. Barters considered.
