DRUMMING KINSHIP with ANIKA NILLES

“What did you teach Anika to make her the incredible player she is?” That actually is a very frequent question I am getting again and again … Based on these multiple requests, Anika and myself are now offering a special one or three-day educational package for your school/institute! Here’s some first short info, we look forward to putting this show on the road! Feel free to reach out to Anika or myself  for more info!

 

From George L. Stone to Joe Morello, Sanford Moeller to Jim Chapin, Joe Morello to Dom Famularo, Alan Dawson to Tony Williams, Gary Chaffee to Vinnie Colaiuta…  throughout the history of drumming there is an interesting parallel: Behind most influential drummers there is an influential teacher. With Anika and Claus there are the same bonds: With Claus being a master student of Jim Chapin and Dom Famularo and Anika being one of the most influential contemporary drumset artists of the 21st century. Want to know more what made Anika the drummer she is? And have a view behind her concepts? And find out about the connection to her teachers? To learn about your own path in music and drumming? Then this package is for you!

Contents:

  • Spend a day with Anika and Claus in a relaxed, educational, non competitive atmosphere.
  • Get first hand information from two knowledgable and internationally respected teachers and drumset artists.
  • Daily practicing routine workouts for pad and drumset: What is it you REALLY need to have down to reach the next level?
  • Hand and foot techniques: Reviewing the basics from Moeller to Stone to Gladstone and applying them to the drums in multiple ways.
  • Subdivision studies and groupings: How to create and use 21st century drumset applications.
  • Have a view behind Anika’s and Claus’s practicing and performing routines: See their strategies and learn how to apply them to your level, your settings, your skills.

CAMP DUTY UPDATE nominated BEST EDUCATIONAL PRODUCT with MODERN DRUMMER

CAMP DUTY UPDATE is nominated as BEST EDUCATIONAL PRODUCT 2019! As many of you may know, this project was a very intense one and created quite some waves in the drumming scene; I was surprised about the incredible positive feedback. From David Garibaldi to Steve Smith to John Beck and Vic Firth – drummers of all kinds of genres were raving about this release. I am super proud and excited and happy at the same time to find that is nominated for the Readers’ Poll with MODERN DRUMMER MAGAZINE, here’s the link where you can leave your vote before December 24. Such a shame that my friend Jost is again running in the same category with his release. On the other side it is really cool to see how German/European Drummers are leaving a serious mark in the drumming scene as Anika and Benny are also nominated in other categories. Anyhow, I thank you all for your support and for leaving your vote in the “right” spot 🙂
