Hello Drummers
Drum Key
 
We are proud to announce that this year’s Drum key’s master class will be taking place around the last week of September first week of October, (to be confirmed), just to let you enough with time to plan ahead. (Please show interest to book, limited places, Sat and Sun only) with Trevor Tomkins.
 For those that were so lucky to be there last year,Pete Cater http://www.premier-percussion.com/artists/pete-cater
, big band leader, solo artist and top notch, great educator, gave us a un unforgettable lesson (oh you were on holiday! Na  na ), he made us think outside the box, regarding time keeping, sight reading, and showed us how it is done at 100 % in the professional world.
This year we have an amazing legend coming to give us his incredible insight into Jazz (and hopefully few jokes) and a first class comping and brush technique class, why? because he is the one and only Trevor Tomkins, Jazz innovator from the 60 to yesterday, top educator with Trinity’s Jazz department the one and only hard working, ever reachable round legend.
He might have been played around every available outlet around with enough quality to bring the best Jazz musicians, yes sometimes even free, (Residency of the Red Lyon Isleworth, back on September 2017, Monday’s).
Well due this year we are mostly working on grades 1 to 5  (rock school/Trinity Guildhall) and most of you decided to go for more Jazz choices, involving, independence, technique on stick and brush alike, and sight and reading from 4/4 to 12/8, 3/4, 7/8 etc....Therefore this is the way to do it.
Well you all should be there! (parents can stay, free coffee and nibbles, parking, toilets) Trevor is not only the most reachable jazz drummer and teacher, one day, Ronny scoots another regular Jazz clubs, he is in the encyclopaedias’ of Jazz, he also is a master on brush technique, he learned from the guys that developed it, Philly Joe Jones plus, see his C.V. for more details, it will be fun and else.
 The fee for the day (around 11:30 – 15:00, be at 11:00 to accommodate you) would be £35 for adults, groups of two (parent/child- siblings, Husband /wife) and under 13’s conceptions, limited places, just, say to us if you are interested or not, and we will booked you. luis_drums_69@hotmail.com 07852304761
Now the work shop/master class will be around 4 hours, with a little break, everyone will be have the chance to play, (2 jazz kits available, p.a. etc) in order to learn top brush technique and jazz comping, soloing, all printed material will be free, no extra expenses, free parking, tea and coffee, and parking, plus two free CD’s for everyone with the best choices of tracks from Trevor’s Jazz collection , and mine.
Oh go on live a little.
Say yes, not payment needed until September.
You need to bring your own pair of sticks, brushes, and a practice pad, and a smile, please feel free to pass the word of the master class and the lessons alike, flyers attached.
