Every presentation is unique and provides a wealth of knowledge! And awesome! We bring top percussion gurus in to share their expertise with our drum students. They introduce new aspects of the percussion/music world and always gives fresh insight valuable to every developing musician and pro alike! Masterclasses are held quarterly with the important purpose of expanding a students’ musical education beyond what they can receive in just taking private lessons. Masterclasses are essential in every musician’s growth.
Non-students are also welcome but there may be a small fee. Don’t miss these opportunities!
We have had a variety of interesting subjects from “latin rhythms” to “making your own mallets” to “drum set technique” and many more. Our presenters are professionals who are top in their field. During masterclasses, students often get the priceless opportunity to perform or watch their peers perform in front of a guest clinician who offers friendly advice and then gives an inspiring performance. Each class has a different theme helpful to all percussionists.
