Registration is now open for this two day intensive camp! 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 aim is the overall improvement of the individual through positive participation and Drumline. This year, there'll be a focus on establishing a solid technique to apply to individual skills and ensemble performance demands. You'll learn directly from industry leaders here in Australia who have extensive experience playing in Drum Corps in the USA. 

In 2020, we're again running two Drum Camps! On Sat 12th and Sun 13th, we'll be running Junior Drum Camp for drummers in Yrs 4-7. Then, on Sat 19th and Sun 20th, we'll host our Senior Drum Camp for drummers in Yrs 8-12. This means all drummers, young and old, will get the full attention of Drum Camp Staff and experience a Drum Camp targeted at their age group! 

So 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.
