Registration is now open for this two day intensive camp, on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December! Designed for all drummers who love the art of drumming and Marching Percussion, this camp is for all performers who currently learn at school, but want to further their knowledge and skills in a fun environment. 

The camp's overarching aim is the overall improvement of the individual through positive participation and Drumline. This year, there will be a focus on establishing a solid technique to apply to individual skills and ensemble performance demands. You will learn directly from industry leaders here in Australia who have extensive experience playing in Drum Corps in the USA. 

Don't worry about any weaknesses that you may have or that you may be better at one element of your playing as Drum Camp fosters enthusiastic education.  Come and enjoy the fun and leave with a greater knowledge and enthusiasm.
