“This is an amazing opportunity for drummers to learn and interact with one of the brightest minds in the industry,” explains community manager, Dave Atkinson. “Antonio will share his creative concepts for building open solos over a groove, over a form, as well as completely open solos. He’ll also be sharing his techniques for sustaining motivic development through your solos.”

The lesson will be broadcasted over the Internet, where students can use their computer, tablet, or smartphone to watch the lesson, submit questions, and chat with other students during the live event.
