Another year and another Spirit of New Orleans drum camp. My 6th annual camp goes December 7th-9th at the Cabildo on Jackson Square all in partnership with the New Orleans Jazz Museum.
This 3-day music camp celebrates the legacy and rich musical tradition that is uniquely New Orleans. My students will enjoy three, 8-hour days of hands-on drumming, for a total of 24 hours of specialized, small group instruction as well as opportunities for private lessons with New Orleans drumming legend Johnny Vidacovich and “King of Treme,” Shannon Powell.
Here’s a video that one of my students made last year summarizing our camp.
At the end of the camp this year, there will be an opportunity to participate in a concert with Ivan Neville, myself and special guests at the renowned Jazz club, Snug Harbor. Space is running low, so sign up now, and I’ll be looking forward to working with you! - SM
UPDATE! The SONO 2018 camp is SOLD OUT this year. Make sure and sign up for SMDA to catch a live event I'll be doing at the camp for those who could not attend.
