This March 14 through 18, Modern Drummer Pro Panelist, MD Fest veteran, and creator of the groundbreaking Language of Drumming DVD, Benny Greb, will be conducting a master session at Full Moon Resort in the Catskill Mountains, about thirty miles from Woodstock, New York.
In his master sessions, Greb guides a limited number of students through several intense days filled with lessons and exercises designed to bridge the gap between drumming and musicianship. The curriculum is designed so that participants go beyond simply sharpening their intellectual and physical tools while receiving the next set of workouts, and toward a deeper understanding of music through experience. To further this, Benny shares his knowledge, insights, and concepts by teaching, playing, having fun in group sessions, and staying full-time with the students during the drum camp.
The syllabus for the Master Session includes the following topics:
• Warm-up and rhythmic training
• Vocabulary building
• Artistic development and effective practicing techniques
• Pad lessons
• Groove design
• The art and science of developing a solid time feel and a great groove
• Click training
• Open classes
