WILL CALHOUN Master Class/Solo Performance

Explore the sonic history of traditional drumming with the birth of technology. Drums can be used as the brain of sound, ambiance, story-telling, and connection to spirits. The class will take a personal look at rhythm, sound, frequency and how the history and future of drumming are interlaced...
