IPA will be going with a more “hands on” approach that will allow the students to participate in a total of six, 50 minute hands-on master classes throughout the day! The goal of each clinician is to give your students 2-3 things that they can apply instantlyto their current playing situations.


Bill Bachman – Tenor drumming and hand technique

Pedro Fernandez – Concert snare drum technique and repertoire

Jon Crabiel – Marimba/Vibe technique and college preparation

Ian Shepherd – Drumset technique and studio drumming

Chelsea Levine – Marching cymbal technique

High Octane Drumline – What it takes to drum in the NBA and game-time performance techniques

Ed Gaus and Bongo Boy Music – World percussion/hand drumming

Each student will sign up for one of 4 tracks for the day and participate in the classes in that track. There will be 3 in the morning, and 3 in the afternoon. Our goal is to provide as much info to the students as we can and have them walk away with tons of great knowledge from each class that they can instantly apply to their current playing situations.
