Local drummers will have a chance to improve their skills when Cranbrook’s Keon Chung visits the Snoring Saqsuatch to present a daylong workshop on March 22.
The workshop is open to drummers of all levels, from beginner to professional, and will cover basic rudiments, posture and stick grip, beat styles, adding variations, creating drum fills, jamming with a band, practicing versus rehearsal, and soloing alone or against a track.
Attendees bring their own drum set-ups at 9 a.m. and set up. The workshop runs from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., with a short break in the middle (bring lunch/snack). All participants will get their snares tuned up and a single draw will take place for a complete kit tune-up to the winner.
Chung has over 20 years of professional playing experience with fellow drummers such as Randy Cooke and Jeff Salem. A tour in Western Canada brought him to Cranbrook in 2000, where he continues his craft of teaching over 200 students since 2002 and gigging on a regular basis.
Registration is $60, available online only until March 21; visit www.snoringsasquatch.com to find this event and the registration link.
