Hot Clinic Lineup For March And April

By Radim McCue Originally published March 10, 2010>

Now is the time to get off your butt and get some education. One way to tune up is with a drumming clinic, and we've never seen a better lineup than what's on tap for March. Tonight you've got Stanton Moore kicking off a big week of clinics. On March 13th, the great Paul Wertico, who spent 17 years with Pat Metheny, is in Idaho. Two days later, the incredible Terry Silverlight puts on a rare clinic at Sam Ash in Long Island. Plus there are clinics by Todd Sucherman, author/teacher Steve Fidyk, and toward the end of the month, the awesome Rhythm Alliance will put on a show in Texas.

If you're international, there are tons of great shows. Keith Carlock burns a swath through the UK and JoJo Mayer, Dom Famularo and others will be at the MusikMesse in Frankfurt in late March. DRUM! will be there, too. Hope to see you. Best of all, the legend of groove, Johnny Vidacovich (above), clinics in Jackson, Mississippi in April.
