Palace Drum Clinic! @ The Palace Theatre,
Feb 21 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

This will be my second appearance at The Palace Drum Clinic and I am really looking forward to it!

My visit last year was a great experience and this years will be just as good I am sure. Last year I started with an opening solo and then 29 minutes later I stopped playing!!

This time I promise to do plenty of playing, but also demonstrate some things that you can take away and add into your drumming and your practice sessions. Matthew Green runs this fantastic drummers gathering and also plays at the clinics, demonstrating many drumming skills and techniques etc.

If you are looking at improving your drumming skills then get yourself a ticket and we’ll see you there!
