Practical Drum Technique Workshop with Matt Green

Birmingham

20 Jan 2019

11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Matt Green of the UK National Drum Fair and the Palace Drum Clinic will be leading this free workshop, which is open to drummers of all ages and abilities.

Participants will each have their own practice pad to play on during the event, allowing participants to learn more than in the average workshop, by being continuously involved. This format also means that all levels and abilities are able to play alongside each other.

This workshop is aimed towards improving technique, practice methods, and tricks of the trade. There will also be a Q & A session for all the burning questions you want to ask, no matter how simple or complex.

Some of the topics covered will include:

  • Rudimental practice
  • Subdivision
  • Elements of Timing
  • Moeller Technique
  • Practice Methods
  • Playing Musically on the Drum Kit
  • Stylistic Playing
  • Historic Drummers

Discounts will be available on a limited number of practise pads for sale on the day.

MU Midlands Regional Officer Ben Benson will be available to talk about how MU membership can provide essential advice and support for musicians working in the industry.

Please register your free place in advance.
