FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions

Besides your sticks, a notebook, and something to write with, all you need is your practice pad and a snare stand. You can even sit on a regular chair. There’s a lot you can do with just a pad, plus there are plenty of opportunities to try things out on the drums as well. The optimal setup would include your drum throne, but you’ll be fine in any scenario.
That would be possible, but would have to be arranged with the organizers beforehand. We don’t want anyone practicing on regular drums during the classes as this would disrupt all the other participants who are using practice pads. There may be a need to use some drum sets during drum labs, but in that case we would need to ask permission for other students to try certain exercises on your drums. If you set up a drum kit, we would ask that you limit it to kick, snare, hats, and optionally a ride cymbal. Most exercises would only require a basic set to learn.

It is possible, but the organizers should be informed in advance. In such situation the set of pads should be limited to kick, snare, hihat and ride cymbal. We would provide extensions if you’d like to plug in the module. However, we don’t think it would be necessary for learning the routines and working out the ideas. It is still worth having your pad and snare stand with you in case we need to move around the room.
We have some feet, hand practice pads and drum thrones. We always try to help and will have some options available. For those arriving by plane, we will try to provide any missing equipment as we are aware of luggage restrictions.
Yes, of course! You should come earlier, find your spot, set up your gear, and it can stay there throughout the whole camp.
Generally, yes. Every time we leave the building, all the rooms are locked and we have the keys. We control which doors can be used to enter the building to prevent unauthorized people from walking around while we are learning. The building is mainly used by our team, except for a few regular office workers from the cultural center. The building is completely locked every night and opened just before our classes. Nevertheless, it is your personal choice to leave your belongings there.
