Music, Drum Set, Percussion

Music clinics are designed to benefit students and music teachers at all levels of experience. They strive to address technical needs without neglecting musicality.

A clinic can focus on technical concerns or concepts of performance.  Often a combination of the two, with a preliminary session on technique.

"I think of the concepts you taught me often ... I spoke of you to Ralph Angelillo (Montreal Drum Fest, creator). I want him to know about you. You're a great person, a great teacher. Thanks, again, for your great words of wisdom..." Percussion for Chantal Chamandy's Egyptian Tour 2008 - Bertil S.
