Legendary drummer Billy Cobham is opening his musical world up in a first-of-its-kind exclusive online workshop series: Billy Cobham’s Guide to Stress-Free Drumming. In a series of 9 three-hour monthly workshops, Cobham and a group of hand-picked guests – world-class drummers Dennis Chambers, Gary Husband, Will Calhoun and Dom Famularo – will teach the art of playing “simply but effectively.” Cobham and his guests will explore how to be the pulse, creating a foundation to support your fellow musicians while injecting your musical history and unique voice into your performance. These masterclasses will offer live coaching, giving participants a chance to have their playing personally reviewed by some of the greatest drummers in the world.
Each class includes a download of a Billy Cobham original composition, drumless play-along, and PDF transcription. Attendees have the opportunity to submit recordings of themselves playing along to Billy’s original songs and can receive live feedback from Billy and the instructors.
The first workshop that will take place this Sunday, April 25.
Main topics to be covered: tempo, technique, dynamics, phrasing, listening and interaction with other musicians.
Ticket price: USD 199.00
The online workshop will take place thanks to Stages Music Arts – Baltimore’s first music school and recording studio that also offers full production and event support.
