Drum Set Teachers Teaming Up

By Jordan Liffengren Published March 5, 2010

On Sunday April 11th, the Drummers Collective in New York City will team up with Hudson Music's Teacher Integration Program to present a full day of seminars, clinics and master classes tailored specifically for drumset teachers. Beginning at 9:30 a.m. and running until approximately 5:00 p.m., this is a rare opportunity to learn from and interact with many of the leading teachers and players of today. Attendance is very limited.


Presentations by Tommy Igoe, Dom Famularo, Jeff Salem, Collective instructors Jason Gianni and Pete Retzlaff, as well as a lesson on the real Gladstone Technique by Arnie Lang.



Among the topics to be covered:


  • Using multi-media to strengthen your teaching
  • Teaching jazz independence
  • Business skills
  • Global perspectives and trends
  • Teaching beginners
  • Expanding your practice
  • Handling adult students
  • Anything else you might want to talk about with our artists and your peers!

In addition, attendees will receive:

  • Over $150 worth of books and DVDs
  • Breakfast and lunch


The fee for the day-long event is $100, payable directly to Drummers Collective. Plenty of time will be added into the day for informal "hang time" with the artists and other guests, and a post-seminar dinner and trip to a local New York performance will round out the day. (Price not included in seminar fee).
