Recently I got an email from a subscriber who thanked us because the lessons on DC got him a scholarship to Berkley College of Music.
Granted, he practiced hours every day, and I know most of you cannot do that but are looking for ways to improve your playing and get some helpful tips. We are excited to help you reach your goals, no matter what they may be!
We have a great musical event this Wednesday! Flamenco music is one of the most rhythmic genres in the world, and two of the best flamenco guitarists join Al Velasquez and Terry Bozzio playing tracks from their new CD, and then they’re back next week for an interview and jam with Terry.
Happy Thanksgiving! It is a time to give thanks and possibly get in a little extra practice. I tried to think of a way to thank you for supporting Drum Channel. It’s so important that we memorialize the greats and pass on their invaluable information, which is what you need to improve your playing. So, for five days you will get an additional 30% off the 20% you already get on store merchandise.
Dare to Drum is the title of an amazing documentary film about a five percussionist ensemble known as “D’Drum,” who approached Stewart Copeland to see if he would write a concerto for them that would ultimately be performed by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. You think, no chance, but it happened. Stewart did it. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra did it. And Maestro Jaap Van Zweden conducted it.
Drum Channel is proud to host a Roundtable Interview and Q & A with Hal Blaine. We will have Hal answer as many of your questions as we can. This unforgettable show will air on Drum Channel in November. (Date to be announced soon!)
Had a fun trip to Detroit to meet Chad’s mom, and hang with him and his brother. It was a great way to get inside stories on what Chad was like in his early years. We also cleared up some questions while we were there.
