Summer Drum Camps (July)

Our July 2016 Summer Drum Camp will cover the specific requirements for the Massachusetts Central District Middle School audition process. Usually called “Jazz Band”, these bands include playing Rock, Blues, Funk, Jazz, Latin styles.

The audition process requires music reading skills and rudiments such as 5, 7 and 9 stroke rolls, the paradiddle family, Flam Accents and Flam Taps.

Time, Groove, Fills and Soloing will be covered in each style along with Brushes and 3/4 Jazz. Students will perform with “playalong” drumless tracks in each style to allow comprehension and comfort while staying true to the stylist vocabulary and internalizing the material learned.

Each day will be an information packed experience.

Take advantage of this opportunity and treat your student to a full week of incredible drum education and fun!

Spread the word. Referrals are welcome.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Kris “MeepMeep” Russell
