NEW SOUNDS ON DRUMSET #1

Format: workshop

Aimed at: drummers

Level: all levels

Date: March 29th, 2019

Notwithstanding the importance and benefit of a comprehensive year-long practicing routine, these two independent (and thus non-successive) workshops aim at finding certain shortcuts, and target some areas that may have been overlooked previously.

Instructor: Jörg Mikula studied at the Kunstuniversität Graz and the Berklee College of Music in Boston, pursuing follow-up studies in Uganda and Morocco.
