Joe Hunt's Linear Drumming Workshop - Tuesday, April 29, 2014, 8pm April 16 2014

Come on down and sit in for the legendary Joe Hunt, professor at New England Conservatory!  This is a participatory ensemble workshop where all drummers will be invited to play.  Accompaniment will be provided by Yuka Hamano Hunt on piano, and likely some other surprise guests.

This is the second in a series of workshops led by Joe; however, each topic is stand-alone, so you won't need to have attended the first one.

"Linear" is also known as melodic drumming, whereby drummers play in a "one note at a time" fashion.  This technique allows for more dynamic control as well as ease of motion.  Joe will provide examples of easy-to-use techniques for jazz, Latin, and other time feels in a live, group setting.

Come to this workshop and improve your ensemble playing skills with coaching by Joe!  You'll learn some new concepts and beats for your own group.  Admission is $10.00 and seating is limited.  Reserve your spot by calling or emailing the shop: (978) 263-7618 or

We hope to see you there!
