Masterclass | How To Build A Drum Solo w/Tristan Miller

Join us for an unforgettable Masterclass at Drums Etc! Every month, we are hosting a different expert to share their expertise during hands-on educational workshops! This is one of many new ventures for Drums Etc in 2024. Each masterclass will be an intimate, ticketed event where you can ask questions, participate in demos, and get specialized advice and guidance!

Tristan Miller leads this class specifically focused on building drum solos! Drum solos can be a highlighted feature in live performance, but can also take other forms such as breakdowns, transitions, and spotlights within a variety of situations. The knowledge Tristan shares here will be incredibly applicable to any performing/recording drummers repertoire! During the class, there will be live demonstrations on a drum set focused on phrasing, creativity and audience participation in the creative process! This masterclass will be packed full of tips/tricks that will inspire you to get more creative with your playing!
