I've been invited by Calgary's BuckingJam Palace to present this educational webinar on Sunday, March 28th at 3pm MST.
The webinar will be presented via Zoom and is open to anyone (and it's also free for students and musicians!)
Register on Eventbrite via the BuckingJam website and you'll be sent a Zoom link via e.mail.
I will be talking about and playing music from many of my favourite jazz drummers from Warren "Baby" Dodds to Brian Blade and everything in between!
Tickets and information are available here.
