Meeting at the Ferihegy Airport with camp coordinator Reka Olbey on August 3rd at Noon.
At this unique camp, we want to combine learning and getting better on the drums with a cool summer vacation at one of the most extraordinary cities in the world, Venice. We will put the students in different groups according to their skill level. The program will include 4 drum lessons with different courses each day, where we will focus on the 4 key elements of drumming: Technique, Coordination, Grooves and Fills.
Besides the drum lessons, we will do music history presentations and masterclasses on different exciting topics.
We will also organize a jam session at the Bar Al Vapore, where such names from the jazz world have played before like Stanley Jordan, Lee Konitz, Nat Adderley, Art Farmer, Steve Lacy, Archie Shepp, Airto Moreira and Steve Coleman.
In the afternoon we will be able to enjoy the beach or the beautiful sights of Venice and we will provide a list of free time activities around the city. A huge plus is that our faculty member, Christian Bruni was born and raised in Venice, so don't miss out on this opportunity to get guided by a true Venetian!
All the camp students will have a discount at an amazing Italian restaurant called Trattoria da Nino, where we will have our farewell dinner at the last evening as well.
