Masterclass | JAZZ : Bebop & Beyond w/John Peifer

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!

John Peifer leads this class focusing on the Bebop style of Jazz music and how it was established in America, in addition to, it’s impact on music as a whole. This presentation will include demonstrations of styles and songs on the drum set as John guides us through the “bop” era artists and influences. John has previously shared on the topic of the formation of Jazz at a Drums Etc “Shop Talk” Session in 2023. This presentation will touch on that, while focusing on the specific influential style of bebop!
