Join Artist/percussionist Marcus Miller and members of the percussion ensemble Project World Drum for a week of summer drumming adventures. Learn to play the drum rhythms and styles of West Africa, Cuba, the U.S., Brazil, and the Caribbean.Whether you’re a novice, intermediate, advanced, (or just simply curious about the drums), this camp has something for you.

During this 1-week program, participants will have the opportunity to study six (6) different styles of drumming.  The styles offered include Traps (drum set), Afro-Cuban (congas, bongos, timbales), West African (djembe, djuns-djuns), Orchestral Mallets (vibraphone, marimba), The Battery (snare, bass drum, tympani), and Caribbean (steel pans).

Campers will study with members of the Project World Drum ensemble. This group of professional percussionists is also gifted at teaching their discipline. Students will benefit from their interaction with the counselors as well as with their fellow campers. The participants will work together toward their potential in a constructive and friendly atmosphere.

Regardless of your experience level, this camp will engage and enhance the knowledge and skill level of each participant. Campers will receive instruction in sight-reading musical notation, application of the 26 traditional Western rudiments, and West African hand and stick drum techniques taught in the Oral Tradition, Afro-Cuban rhythms & songs, techniques and patterns for the drum set, and an introduction to playing melodically on tuned percussion.

Camp activities include a morning Rhythm Circle, a daily afternoon Jam Session, camp awards ceremony, and “Drop-Byes” by special guest celebrity drummers. Snack and drinks are provided, but campers should bring a lunch. All campers will receive a free camp T-shirt.
