rudiments + coordination
correct hand + foot technique
how to chart songs
how to read sheet music
how to lead a band
how to play with a metronome + backing tracks
This class is great for:
beginner, intermediate + advanced drummers

ABOUT THE TEACHER
Cory Shuman is a music producer, songwriter, record executive, drummer and educator based in Savannah, Georgia. For over a decade Cory has taught over 200 students, with great success -- some of his students have made GMEA All-State, played in professional touring bands, and have gone on to march Drum Corp International. He has consulted for Georgia Southern University, Atlanta Quest (an award-winning WGI drumline), and four-time Georgia marching band state champions, South Effingham Highschool Marching Mustangs. He is the co-creator of Little Bird + Big Sound, a recording studio and independent record label that he runs with his wife, Julia, and is the drummer/producer for the band Tell Scarlet. As a drummer Cory has performed on many stages including Hard Rock Cafe and House of Blues, and has shared the stage with a myriad of local, regional and national acts, including Christian worship artist David Glenn, South Carolina-based act, Cranford Hollow, and Ed Roland and the Sweet Tea Project (formerly of Collective Soul fame).
Cory Shuman is currently sponsored by Heartbeat Percussion and SJC Custom Drums.
During this exciting 24-session drum camp, students will meet with Cory for a 1.5 hour class + workshop, 2 evenings per month, starting in January and ending in December 2018. Classes will take place on Monday through Thursday evenings at Cory's home.
