London Drum Clinic
24 Apr 2015
Drumsense founder Colin Woolway is leading a drum clinic with seriously awesome drummers Darby Todd (Robert Plant, Huey Lewis, The Darkness) and Gabor Dornyei (Thunder Duo, Thriller Live). The event is on Thurs 7th May 7:30pm at the Hideaway Club, 2 Empire Mews, Streatham, London SW16 2BF.
I have felt the drums since I was a boy. Always tapping tables and other household implements. However I didn't start to play the drums until I was 23.
Since Iíve started playing Iíve learned about myself as a person, how to work with others and had a load of fun!
I feel that the drums can be used as a musical instrument without having highly developed manuscript reading skills. However I do believe the best way of learning to play drums is to learn the rudiments, time keeping, a certain degree of reading and most importantly musicality. Rockschool grades can be undertaken if the pupil wishes. Iíve never had a student get less than a merit in any of the exams they have done. I am a member of the Musicians Union, have full Public Liability insurance and an Enhanced DBS Certificate.
I am the drummer with contemporary alt folk band Rag Foundation. We were lucky enough to travel the world playing in Canada, Australia, Egypt, Hungary, Italy, France, Netherlands, Latvia, Malta, Belgium and many other places. The band released three albums that are still available via Amazon.co.uk and other record stores. We are releasing our fourth album this year on 29th June 2015.
I was on a UK tour with the amazing blues guitarist, the late great, Lil Dave Thompson (http://www.lildavethompson.co.uk/) in Sept 2005 which kick started my playing the blues. I currently play in a number of local bands playing, blues, country, folk, alt rock, indie and funk to name but a few styles! I have my own recording studio where I also teach.
I love to play music with other people and hopefully pass on to others the fun, enjoyment and passion for drums, percussion and music in general.
