 DRUMMER FOR BAND HEART BRINGS DRUMSTICKS TO IDAHO FALLS:  Ben Smith to Conduct Drum Clinic at Chesbro Music Co

While on tour with the band Heart, Ben Smith will be breaking from his touring schedule to provide a drum clinic at Chesbro Music Co. in Idaho Falls. For anyone interested in hearing his talent, or learning his unique approach to effective teambuilding, the $5 clinic will begin at noon Friday September 7th.

Ben Smith's interest in presenting drum clinics has come from his experience of watching professionals who are active in musical performance and his fondness of interacting with people of all ages. His clinics involve exposing the crowd to the techniques he uses while working live, and in the recording studio with a wide array of musical artists.

From tips on drum fundamentals to odd-meter drumming, drum tuning, and drum groove composition, Ben will explain how basic techniques apply to all types of musicians. In addition, he performs to audio tracks of songs he has co-written with friends from bands like Alice in Chains and Steely Dan. Clinic participants will be treated to join in-group rhythm patterns, and a no-holds barred Q and A session.
