Dave Major - YouTube Educator and Clinician

Appearing on Saturday on the second floor, teacher, YouTube educator and clinician Dave Major will be bringing his unique and energetic teaching style to the UK Drum Show.

Since his debut clinic tour in 2015 Dave has styled himself and his clinics as focused on practice and helping the audience improve their own practice routines.
In his clinic Dave will showcase ‘The Process’, his methods for developing new ideas and musicality on the drums, improving your co-ordination and working with ostinatos and grooves.

“My clinics are based heavily around education and getting the audience involved. If I can get everyone smiling, clapping along and leave having learned something then I have done my job”

If you’ve ever wanted to improve these aspects of your drumming then don’t miss out on this!

Dave is appearing in association with Natal Drums and Evans Drumheads.
