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!

We are currently working hard at Drum Camp to prepare for a Snare Drum Workshop 2017. This camp will hone in and enhance the skills of the individual players. Discussions with Trinity College of London are well on the way to ensure that all Drummers at the Snare Drum Workshop can sit the Trinity Snare Drum Exam and leave with a world recognised Certificate and Grading. Dates and more details to come soon.
23rd June 2014 saw the Drum Camp All Stars perform a workshop at the Percussive Art Society Day held at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music. The workshop was a great success with everyone loving their performance and sound. Thank you to Tom O'Kelly and Vanessa Tomlinson from The Queensland Conservatorium & Gary France from Percussive Arts Society for having us.
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!
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.
Success Doesn't Come to You. You go to it!

NEXT DRUM CAMP: December 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.
