During my visit at BERKLEE COLLEGE OF MUSIC and Dom’s WIZDOM WOODSHED on Long Island there was a longer interview with David Ward at Musicians on the record – which turned out really nice! See the whole video here … In addition to that there are some more short clips on special topics, also including exerpts from live drumsolo performances and stuff with FLUX, including some interesting views behind the curtain. Enjoy, spread the word and be inspired!
Finally! CAMP DUTY UPDATE is now also available internationally in English through Alfred Music Publishing! Anything you always wanted to know about the rich heritage of rudimental drumming, its European roots, interpretation guide, playalongs with rudimental classics and modern versions using influences from Swiss and French rudimental drumming traditions as well as collapsed rudiments – you name it. The list of credits is pretty impressive: From Dom Famularo, Alex Acuna and Matt Halpern to Vic Firth, John Wooton, Steve Smith, Ralph Hardimon, David Garibaldi and Bill Bachman. Available in the shop on claushessler.com – spread the word!
Another highlight in August: OPEN MINDED DRUM CAMP in Poland, organized by Szymon Fortuna with a pretty cool concept made up of masterclasses, practicing sessions and Q&A section plus a final concert. Thanks again to MAPEX Poland, Sabian, Evans, Alfred Music Publishing and Promark for the support. We are already planning for another event next year, there will also be a couple of educational columns in the Polish “Perkusista” magazin and most likely also a workshop tour (maybe already spring 2018). Stay tuned for more!
