Drum Shorts Easter Camp 2023
4 day Camp
Location: Newpark Music Centre, Blackrock.
Dates: April 11th to 14th
Times: 9.30am to 12.30pm
Ages: 8 -12years
Learn drum kit, Percussion skills, Latin Rhythms, beatboxing, body percussion, and explore contemporary drum styles like rock, punk, metal and electronic.
The workshop will centre around the drum circle, where we learn how important rhythm and pulse is. Led by Drum Shorts Sebastian Jezzi and joined by special guests the students will take part in Drums stick workouts, melodic percussion songs and soloing forming the basis of our final day where we will perform for parents.
Suitable for ages 8 - 12. No experience necessary, but the workshop will benefit all levels of ability. We will supply all equipment needed, but students are welcome to bring their own drum sticks, percussion instruments or cymbals.
