The Mark Kelso Drum Clinic takes place at 2:00 pm on Saturday, October 15, 2016 at the Merrickville Legion.
Merrickville’s Jazz Fest, with the generous support of Yamaha Canada, is pleased to present a drum clinic featuring internationally acclaimed artist Mark Kelso. For student and professional drummers, this is a great opportunity to learn from a master drummer. Not only for drummers, every musician can benefit from hearing Mark perform and discuss his musical concepts and techniques. Listeners will leave the clinic with a greater understanding and appreciation for what’s involved in making music.
Canadian drummer Mark Kelso has made Toronto, Canada his home for quite some time. Not only is he a skilled musician who plays drums and percussion, but he is also a singer, producer, composer and band leader as well. Mark has been the Head of the percussion dept at Humber College in Toronto since 2005.
Mark recently released his first instructional drum DVD entitled, “Musician First, Drummer Second” to great acclaim.
Mark endorses and is a featured clinician for Yamaha Drums, Paiste Cymbals, Evans Drum heads, Headhunters drumsticks and Plunge Audio in-ear monitors.
