This workshop is for all ages and experience levels, reinforcing rudiments and introducing performance concepts. Participants are placed into one of three age-appropriate groups and are taught by three different clinicians. Our clinicians this year are myself, Darrell Tibbs, JD Blair, and Will Kennedy. I try to find clinicians that take a hands-on approach. Past classes have included instruction on subjects such as: the application of electronics with percussion, how different percussion instruments interact with drums, creating space for and complementing the drummer, when to play and not to play, the application of electronics with percussion, and the intangibles of how to be a successful musician. Will Kennedy of the Yellowjackets teaches our Master Class which everyone attends after lunch. Last year he gave us "Take the Gig!" Lunch is provided. Everyone gets goodie-bags filled with treats from our sponsors and a chance to win door prizes.
