This December we will be welcoming another drumming talent to ISM Academy. Over the last few years, I have built up many drumming contacts, even to the point of calling them friends. I have always believed that listening to as many players as possible is really important to any future drummer and this is a chance to do exactly that.
On December 17th I will be hosting a one day drum camp featuring one of my favourite players, Rob Hirons. This one day drum camp will give you an insight to many techniques used by the modern drummer and will serious improve your understanding of the drum kit.
As an active drum educator, Rob maintains an intense schedule as Course Director and teacher at the acclaimed music school MLC Academy Marseille, as well as coaching up and coming drummers in the specialised drum studio the Wizdom Drumshed designed with Global Drum Ambassador Dom Famularo.
Having a strong desire to share modern drum-set techniques with others, Rob wrote the drum tuition book Groove Facility. Distributed by Alfred Publishing, Groove Facility sells worldwide and has gained excellent reviews throughout the drumming community and press. To promote the techniques in Groove Facility, Rob acts as Teacher in Residence at many schools in France as well as travelling to schools in the UK and Italy, reaching even more up
coming students and fans of the drum set.
The class will take place at ISM Academy, 20 Silver Street, Kettering, NN16 OBN from 10am until 3pm on Thursday 17th December. The day will be open to just five students and cost you £50 including a free ticket for the evening clinic. You will also have the opportunity to join myself, Fanny Themlin and Rob for a behind the scene sound check before general admission.
