Hi Matt,

Great job over the weekend and thanks for organising it!

Ross Dovey

Education Qld Percussion Teacher


Thank you for the incredible camp on the week end. James felt a real sense of achievement. Your knowledgeable and disciplined approach inspired him to work hard. 


I just wanted to congratulate you on how great drum camp was! I twas an incredible learning experience and I am greatful to have been part of it.

I was able to focus a lot on my techniques and gained a better insight into my drumming. I also was overwhelmed at how amazing it was just to be surrounded by drummers all wanting to reach the same goal of excellence.

I think drum camp is a wonderful concept and what you've created is definitely appreciated.

Thanks a heap for all your hard work you put into the camp! I look forward to future camps and I wish I could go to drum camp every day!

Tenor Workshop 2020

We are currently working hard at Drum Camp to prepare for a year of educational workshops the first is Tenor Workshop.  This day workshop will hone in and enhance the skills of the individual players.  Lead by DCI tenor drummer Keith Stephens this day will demystify and extend your knowledge.  Dates and more details to come soon.

Want your Gr 3 Certificate?

2020 will see the first of our intensive Grade 3 Orchestral Percussion Camps, where over two weekends students will learn the repertoire, knowledge and skillset to successfully pass their Trinity College of London Grade 3 exam. We can't do it for you though, this will require dedicated practise at home. Do the intensive, improve your playing, create a habit and get qualified! 

See you there.

Timbanouki Spectacular

2013 Greek Paniyiri Festival in Westend Brisbane was opened by the Timbanouki Spectacular. The spectacular saw the Drum Camp All Star Drumline and Brisbanes best Bouzouki players combine for a previously unseen or heard version of 'Never on a Sunday'.  A slight twist of funk was added in the making!

Spring into Summer 2013

Oct 6 & 7 saw many of South East Queensland's dumlines converge into one place to learn from Scott Johnson of Blue Devils USA.  The camp was a day camp from 9 - 4pm each day with a open house performance from 3pm on the Monday 7th (Labour Day Holiday).  Scott Johnson is endorsed by Pearl, Evans Drum Heads and ProMark Sticks and will be joined by Matt Cocking, Keith Stephens & Tracey James.  

The camp was a great success.  Well done to all the participants.

Drum Camp. Ignite the Passion!

Success Doesn't Come to You.  You go to it!

Founded by Matt Cocking in 2012, the Drum Camp curriculum has sparked great interest amongst educators with camps now in planning for North Queensland, Singapore and China within the next 12 months.  Matt Cocking is endorsed by, Yamaha Music Corporation of Australia (Yamaha Drums), Promark Drum Sticks & Evans Drum Heads.


The Drum Camp Staff hope to be drumming with you at a camp soon!

NEXT DRUM CAMP: Tenor Drum Camp - Registration Open

Drum Camp is an education program for young Percussionists who have a desire and urge to pursue excellence in Percussion.  Camps are based around the philosophy of ‘Play. Learn. Drum.’ and teach the students to embrace all facets of Percussion equally.  Percussionists and Drummers can be forgotten about in a traditional band program after all we place them at the back of the room however at Drum Camp there is only one focus, Percussion. (Still one day we might just bang a Flute for fun!) 

Music is fun and even through the formative years it is important to remember that we play music and don’t work music.  Drum Camp fosters confidence and enhances enthusiasm creating better performance outcomes, experiences and performers.  It gives students a greater purpose and the extrinsic motivation to be a better player while moving up the ranks at Drum Camp.
