Hip Hop techniques and much more!
Join legendary percussionist Swiss Chris for an afternoon drum clinic. Chris has played with some of the most popular artists of our time: John Legend, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Gloria Gaynor, Billy Cobham, Sir Elton John, Corinne Bailey Rae, Estelle, Wyclef Jean and many many others. Swiss Chris also teaches drum technique at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and has published one of the top drum technique books of all time “Modern Drum Set Stickings.” “Swiss Chris has written a beautiful and original drum book…. This work touches excellently on the legacy of drum rudiments…and brings it alive in an innovative and fun way. The student will also find modern ways of deepening musicality with beat-boxing and hip hop sensibilities. Kudos to Swiss Chris.” —Kenwood Dennard (Sting, Jaco Pastorius) (Associate Professor of Percussion, Berklee College of Music) During the workshop, Swiss Chris will speak about Mental and Physical Aspects of Drumming and will explain and demonstrate basic to advanced Stickings while cross referencing the Musical Checklist, ensuring that technique is relative to the musical style the students are working in.
