After the success of the PDCamp 2020, we are going to do it all again in 2021.
Due to recent Covid restrictions, The Palace Drum Camp is going to be running as a 2 day drumming event over the weekend of 20-21 February 2021. The PDCamp will be streamed on Zoom and it will be the closest experience as possible to being at the camp itself.
The camp will still be fully interactive, with back to back workshops, and the added bonus of being behind your own kit at home. If you are not able to attend, we are offering a recording of all the workshops/masterclasses.
Over the weekend, each student will receive classes with all the tutors on different aspects of drumming. These classes will be broken down into smaller groups for a more intimate learning environment. Each student will receive around 12 hours of tuition over the course of PDCamp. More details on this are available in the PDCamp Companion*
Topics that have been covered include;
- Rudimental Secrets,
- Creativity & freedom on the drum kit,
- Mic’ing/recording drums
- Exploring & finding new sounds on your drum kit,
- Reading between the lines,
- Practical interpretations of Stick Control and Syncopation,
- Making creativity a daily habit,
