I'm also available for Drum Clinics ( Type of material covered depends on the purpose of the clinic, and if I am one of many performing, and instructing, or performing as sole clinician). For example, I can provide information regarding how to kick a big band, developing coordinated independence, and application of certain rudiments such as Paradiddles (Parastroking), and combining single strokes and double strokes to facilitate movement around the kit, and controlling dynamics and playing at different tempos.
