Due to the current situation, it won’t be possible for Dom Famularo to come to Poland.
We know what you feel! It’s heartbreaking news but we did our best to work it out.
Dom will meet with us online. He has a huge experience in online teaching and
we bet these masterclasses will be great!
We also invited a new teacher! We realize it’s a last-minute change but we ask for your understanding.

This year we are not creating a totally new program, but for the upcoming camp, we are introducing a major change! We are moving from the vertical approach, which means focusing on one subject every day, to the horizontal way of arranging the classes. Each day we will try to make one step forward using the exercises, which will be presented in an easy version for our new participants and with a slightly more advanced form for our returning students.
It means that you will begin each day by studying rudiments, then you will be working on your hands, feet, coordination, and groove, as you would normally practice at home. We want to focus not only on inspiring you but also on optimizing your drum practice. We want to polish the details, make sure that you not only understand each subject separately but how they all correlate with each other.
We hope that if we work on each skillset every day it will give you an even stronger base and a better understanding of how to improve your drumming when practicing back home.
5 units x 75 min
This class will consist of 5 units. It will be conducted by Szymon Fortuna, a student of Claus Hessler. The Rudimental Workshop is an evolution of the Warm-up session that our students were part of so far. The material that you will be studying will be even more closely related to the rest of the classes, giving you stronger foundation, broader picture and teach you how to break things into smaller and easier to understand blocks of information.
Each day you will be studying rudiments that you most likely know but with more analytical approach. We will try to show you more connections between different phrases that may appear to be distant but yet quite closely related and therefore easier to master.
6 units x 45 min
We have prepared for you 6 different masterclasses. They will be led by Claus Hessler and some of them by Dom Famularo. Claus will cover four main areas of your drum development: Hands, Feet, Coordination and Groove. Each of the masterclass will be strongly connected with your drum lab practice sessions. Each of these session will leave you with better understanding of the drumming and its integral parts.
The other two classes, led by Dom will allow you to discover even more interesting, important and exciting aspects of the art of drumming. Stay tuned for more…
2 units x 75 min
16 units x 60 min  1 unit x 105 min
It’s all about the practice! This year we divided these classes into four separate practice sessions. For the very first time you will work on your hands, feet, coordination and groove every day. As you probably realised by now, each Master Drum Lab is an extension to the main Masterclass. You will practice in smaller groups under close supervision of Claus and Dom. We all know how important is your daily practice. These sessions are here to put you on the right path to accelerate your potential through your “Daily Drumset Workout”
4 units x 60 min
Our goal is for you to leaved the camp without any doubts. This class has been successfully initiated in 2019, and is here for everybody who may need some extra help regarding any subject from the Masterclasses or the Master Drum Labs. These sessions are optional, anybody can join, ask their personal question and after getting the feedback, they can go back to the regular Master Drum Labs. It will be limited to just 5 people at one time to ensure full attention towards the participant’s needs.
4 units x 90 min
1 unit x 120 min  1 unit x 60 min
We are very excited to begin our partnership with Majestic Percussion and Symphonic Backline company who will help us to provide you the gear that will make your practice comfortable.
Nevertheless, many of our participants choose to bring their personal gear for their best comfort. That is totally fine and we strongly encourage you to do so. We kindly ask you to mark during your registration process the gear that you can definitely bring with you. It will help us to target better what will be most needed to provide.
Don’t worry about any details. We will be in touch with you before the camp and help you with everything along the way.
We will provide:
You should bring with you:

Our team consists of drummers and active working musicians. Playing on drums requires some financial commitment. We know that apart from the expenses regarding the instrument, it is very important to invest wisely in your own personal development too.
This year we were finally able to create a flexible Payment Plan, which will help you to finance your education without a sudden impact on your wallet.
*The detailed prices will be reflected when choosing your payment plan on the Camp Sign Up Page.
We accept drummers who are no younger than 14 years old. The main reason for it is their safety. Although we do our best to look after every participant, we cannot commit to watch them outside the classroom. It’s due to the number of the students that we deal with at any given time.
We know how important it is for a young person to learn from the best at their early stage of music growth. Therefore we always tend to make a limited number of exceptions. Those are carefully made based on detailed conversations with parents, by learning more about the particular young student and so forth. We cannot guarantee that we will accept that person but we will honestly do our best to make the right choices.
