Young Drummer Of The Year - Feb 2015
I'm happy to announce that I'll be a judge at this years Young Drummer Of The Year Final taking place at at the Spa center Leamington Spa on 1st Feb.
The Young Drummer of the Year was started in 2002 by Mike Dolbear and over the years has evolved to attract over 400 entrants each year, aged 16 and under. The process of choosing, first a final 40 then the final 10 drummers who will play on the day is down to several professional players and teachers from a 2 minute DVD of the entrants playing.
I love this event as it showcases the UK's young drumming talent and its always amazing to see so many successful drummers out there working who have come through the Young Drummer Of The Year.
It is a great event to watch and be a part of for any music fan, you can buy your tickets here.
