Closely following the launch of Billy Cobham and Thomas Lang’s online drumming schools, the Northern-California online music education company ArtistWorks has announced that the Luis Conte School Of Percussion is now online and accepting students.
Conte’s domain contains hundreds of high quality video percussion lessons that explore a wide variety of percussion styles and world rhythms within a full curriculum of percussion techniques on a diverse array of percussion instruments including congas, bongos, timbales, cajon, guiro, and other assorted hand percussion. What’s more, the interactive lessons are available in bilingual options.
“I talk to young players all the time who have watched my educational DVDs and they always have questions for me,” Conte says. “Now they can just ask me those questions personally and I can help them on the spot.”
Grammy Award-winning, master percussionist Luis Conte has worked with some of the greatest names in contemporary music, including Madonna, Eric Clapton, Phil Collins, Santana, Jackson Browne, Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand, Ray Charles, Tony Bennett, James Taylor, Shakira, Ozzy Osbourne, and Arturo Sandoval among others.
