The third annual DrumPhil workshop again proved to be a busy and successful day. This Philly Drum Project production brings 12 high school students to study with some of the best drummers / teachers around, at no cost to the participants. Being around so many driven individuals always leaves me feeling inspired. I got to witness glimpses of one-on-one master drum classes, sit in on JP Bouvet's clinic to learn the importance (and challenge!) of "counting", and see three-person drum ensembles create and perform a piece all in a matter of hours. What a whirlwind day!
Here's a sneak peak of some of the photographs I've been working on. The full set will be available next week, when participants are welcome to download files at no charge. Check out some of my favorites below, and follow Philly Drum Project for updates on when the full set becomes available.
