KoSA Music, a successful music education events company that organizes high-level music camps, workshops and festivals worldwide, made its way to China recently. Founder, drummer, and percussionist, Aldo Mazza brought KoSA to hundreds of eager Chinese drummers involved in 9 Beats Music Education Schools for a learning experience unlike any other.
The 2013 event kicked off with the band competition for kids of all ages studying at 9 Beats. Following the competition were several jam-packed days featuring back-to-back teacher training seminars given by Aldo to 9 Beats teachers which focused on traditional Cuban rhythms and their application on the drum set. Other seminars gave students lessons in drum set and percussion, finger exercising, marching percussion, and much more.
Plans are already underway for next year’s event in China (August 2014) with a possibly bigger collaboration with the reputable 9 Beats school.
