On November 9, 10 and 11, adults will be able to learn to groove on drumset, hand drums, and hand percussion. Featured drummer, composer, author, and educator Ed Roscetti covers a variety of traditional and hybrid styles in both classroom and ensemble settings accompanied by a professional rhythm section. Bass players and guitarists are welcome as well!
Styles covered include: samba, olodum, Afro-Cuban, jazz, blues, rock, funk and hip-hop. The rhythm section will accompany large and small group ensemble classes leading up to a final performance. On the last day, family and friends are invited to enjoy this interactive day of fun and music as students showcase their newly developed rhythmic skills. Playing in a rhythm section will give attendees a better understanding of the drum, bass and guitar relationship. Technique, time feel, rhythmic phrasing, song form, and improvisation will be highlighted.
This three day hands-on approach to drumming and rhythm section awareness will provide a unique opportunity for students of all levels to come together and communicate through rhythm.
The cost of the camp is $250 per participant. Contact Jillian Jepsen at (760) 438-5996, ext. 212 for information and registration.
