“Drums Are Fun” 2024 Summer Drum Camp is July 8-10

Join Les DeMerle, world-renowned drummer and Artistic Director of the Amelia Island Jazz Festival, as he teaches kids, age 9 and up, the basics of drum and rhythm skills. Enjoy three days of fun, music, and rhythm jams where kids get to play on state-of-the-art Zildjian Practice Pads, snare drums, and a professional drum set. Subjects include the correct way to hold drumsticks, counting and reading rhythms, creating a groove with a steady beat, learning drum rudiments, and applying them to the drum set. Plus, there’s a special recital on Wed. where all the kids play together in the final jam session performing the skills they learned for family and friends.

Drums Are Fun will be held at Arts Alive Nassau, 96072 Chester Road in Yulee. Advance registration is required. For more information email ldmm@bellsouth.net or call (904) 277-7942.
